The trial for a 22-year-old Metairie woman charged in the death of her newborn in Lake Pontchartrain in Kenner has been postponed to July.
Ciara Craig had been scheduled to stand trial this week on a charge of second-degree murder.
She is accused of giving birth in her Metairie home and then putting the newborn in the lake on Feb. 10, 2009.
Kenner police said Craig admitted the child was alive when she watched the body sink below the surface.
She turned herself in to detectives about five hours after officers found the body.
