STEVENS POINT, WI (WTAQ) - For the fourth time, a new trial date has been set for a man accused of killing his girlfriend's two-year-old son while babysitting him in central Wisconsin.
27-year-old Reymundo Perez is now scheduled to have his jury selected February 26th.
A week-and-a-half of testimony and arguments are expected to begin February 27th in Portage County Circuit Court in Stevens Point.
Perez is charged with reckless homicide and reckless child abuse in the death of 2-year-old Felix Espinosa-Villa at his girlfriend's mobile home in Bancroft in late October of 2011.
Prosecutors said Perez threw the toddler to the ground twice, because the youngster would not stop crying. He died two days later at a Marshfield hospital.
Among other things, the trial delays involved the availability of expert witnesses. Perez is being held at the Lincoln County Jail in Merrill.
