The man charged in the murder of a Gering toddler gets to wait a few more months before the case goes to trial.

Dustin Chauncey appeared this morning in Scotts Bluff County District Court. His attorney Bernard Straeker had filed a motion for a continuance late Wednesday afternoon. Chauncey had a pretrial hearing scheduled for Friday; but has been delayed until November 20th. His trial is set to begin on December 16th. 

He is charged with manslaughter and intentional child abuse causing death. The charges follow a January Grand Jury indictment relating to the murder of two year old Juliette Geurts.

The child's mother, Charyse Geurts' charges were dismissed earlier this year due to statute of limitations.
