Patel trial delayed again

The trial for a Granger woman, accused of leaving her newborn baby in a dumpster in July of 2013, was delayed again.

Purvi Patel was in the St. Joseph County court Tuesday morning. According to a release from the court, Patel's lawyer asked the judge for more time to get an opinion from a medical expert.

Patel will be back in court for her record date on May 12. Her trial is scheduled to start June 6.

Patel was charged in July 2013, with Neglect of a Dependent, a Class A felony, after her newborn infant was found in a dumpster behind a shopping center in MIshawaka.
