Baby Murder Trial Delayed

An eastern Kentucky couple was scheduled to go on trial Tuesday on charges they murdered their ten-month old baby boy.

Officials with the Commonwealth's Attorney office tell us it happened because another trial went longer than expected.

Court officials tell us the Miller's will be back in court March 7th to set a new trial date.

Karen and Robert Miller's son, Braxton, died from what the coroner ruled a methadone overdose.

Investigators are still unsure where the methadone came from or how it ended up in the baby's body.

    I am a mother of three. How can you not know where or how a methodone pill come in contact with your child.I mean come on Meds. wether prescribed or abused the med. should be up and out of reaching distance of children. If your prescribed or abuse these medication then you should be more responsible. If your an abuser or addict then you should provide better supervision for the kids in your care especially your own.Its so sad that baby Braxton had to experience such negligence and be neglected by the people who brought him him to this world. He could of been so happy, and full of life and became something, someone, but instead he was neglected, because of these sick twisted selfish people who thought blowing money on pills was more important than going and buying their own child food clothes or a nice outfit to wear, or that time that they got their buzz or that high was to good, better than seeing that beautiful smile or hearing that cute little laugh. Poor little angel.

    They should both be hung, not the death injection, that way maybe they will suffer just like their own son did.

    I think if children were taken from parents and not given back this would let them think as to which was most important their drugs or their children. But of course the Justice System and Social Services always want to find a way for the children to be put back in the homes with drug addicts. The children should be thought of first not the parents. Childrens safty should come first no matter how long they are away from their parents. It takes longer than a week or month for people to get off drugs and stay clean. So please think of the Children first.
