BAY CITY, Mich. A federal judge in Bay City has delayed the trial of a man in the death of a 4-year-old boy whose badly burned remains were discovered buried on the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Reservation.
Twenty-one-year-old Anthony Bennett was set for trial this spring in last year's killing of Carnel Chamberlain.
Judge Thomas L. Ludington delayed the trial until Jan. 14 after Bennett's previous lawyer had his law license suspended and John A. Shea took over the defense.
Bennett faces first-degree murder, assault and other charges.
Carnel was last seen alive June 21, 2012, when his mother went to work and left him in Bennett's care. Carnel's remains were found buried outside the home that the boy and his mother shared with Bennett.
