ETOWAH COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

A judge has moved the trial of a grandmother accused of killing her grandchild.

Joyce Garrard is charged with capital murder in the death of Savannah Hardin.

Garrard will go to trial February 23, 2015.

She is being held without bond in the Etowah County Jail. Jessican Hardin, Savannah Hardin's stepmother, is charged with felony murder in the child's death. Hardin is currently out on a $150,000 bond.

Prosecutors say Garrard made the nine-year-old girl run for three hours as punishment for a lie about eating a candy bar on Feb. 17, 2012. The child collapsed and died three days later at a hospital. Hardin is accused of not intervening.
