Pretrial hearing postponed for man charged with death of Gering toddler

Posted: Updated:

A pre-trial hearing that was scheduled for Monday for the man charged in the murder of a Gering toddler has been pushed back until next month.

26-year-old Dustin Chauncey will now be back in court on September 13th, and his trial has been pushed back until a October 21st start date.

Chauncey's attorney asked for more time to prepare for the case, and was granted the extension this morning in Scotts Bluff County District Court.

He is being charged with intentional child abuse causing death. The charges follow a January Grand Jury indictment relating to the murder of Geurts.

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