A new trial date has been set for a north Iowa woman charged in the 2022 death of a child in her care.

According to court records, 69-year-old Shirley Weber of Cresco is accused of operating an unlicensed daycare on June 28, 2022, when she allegedly placed a 16-month-old boy in his car seat and only buckled the top buckle.  However, the toddler slid down in the car seat and was choked by that top buckle.
