GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) - A court has delayed a bond hearing for an Alabama grandmother charged with capital murder in the running death of her 9-year-old granddaughter.
An Etowah County judge was scheduled to consider a bond request by 48-year-old Joyce Hardin Garrard on Friday, but he delayed the hearing until May 7.
Court records don't show why Judge William Ogletree postponed a status conference for the second time in as many months.
Garrard has been in jail more than a year awaiting trial in the death of her 9-year-old granddaughter, Savannah Hardin.
Authorities say the woman forced the child to run as punishment for a lie, and the girl died.
The girl's stepmother also is charged with murder in her death, but the judge previously released her on bond.
