The Lewiston Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/147fm7j) that 29-year-pld Natasha N. Hodges of Lewiston on Wednesday waived her right to have the trial within six months of her arraignment.
Hodges pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder on April 17 in 2nd District Court.
Prosecutors say 2-year-old Rylee Mingo died of internal bleeding on Aug. 30 after being struck in the abdomen by Hodges.
