Trial For Couple Accused Of Killing Daughter Continued

Still no trial date set for a Clark County couple accused of killing their 10-year old daughter.

Today's scheduled hearing for Joy and Patrick Watkins was continued until November 1st.

The judge says they're still waiting on lab results in the case.

The Watkins' are facing murder charges for the death of their daughter Michaela earlier this year.

Both say it was an accident, but investigators say Michaela was badly beaten and burned.

    I hope that this couple pays for the misery and pain they caused this child. Childhood should be a time of happiness, but they made this child suffer for months and then slowy murdered her. They deserve the death penalty.

    let me start this out by saying if they are convicted the deserve to die, no questions no pity.. if you are badly beaten and burned how is that an accident? even if they beat this child and didn't mean to kill her the should be put to death!!!time to stop feeling sorry for these worthless parents
