A woman accused of leaving her newborn baby in a dumpster was in court Wednesday morning.

The trial in this case has been delayed for almost a year.

Purvi Patel was charged back in July with neglect of a dependent, a class A felony.

Her attorney tried to push back the trial again, saying more time is needed since he is working with a medical expert.

But that possibility was rejected.

Patel goes to trial September 15.
