New Hampton, IA – The mother who is facing a murder charge for killing her 4-month-old son has received a new trial date.
Cheyanne Harris was originally supposed to stand trial this Wednesday. That date was moved after her attorney requested that they have more time to prepare. The new date is set for June 11 in Chickasaw County District Court. Zachary Koehn is also facing the same charges.
Their 4-month-old son, Sterling Koehn, was found dead in his swing on Aug. 30. Authorities say that the baby was found in his swing and that he had not been moved in over a week.
Harris and Koehn have been charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment causing death. Koehn’s trial is March 28.
