Trial delay for accused baby killer

Brandon Bottom

MICHIGAN CITY — The jury trial for accused baby killer Brandon Lee Bottom was supposed to begin Monday, but has been pushed back until January because of a congested schedule in La Porte Superior Court 1.

Bottom – who is accused of beating his 8-week-old son to death earlier this year – will return to court for a final pretrial conference on Dec. 12, with his new trial date for Jan. 13, 2020.
