Hearings in two high-profile cases were rescheduled Wednesday.
In Lee County Court, Matthew W. Welling, 32, of Amboy, is charged with first-degree murder and two counts of home invasion. Investigators say he pushed his way into the home of Delmar Leroy Daniels, 79, in mid-July and killed him during a struggle.
Wednesday’s hearing on motions to toss his confession and evidence collected at the scene were rescheduled for April 3.
In Whiteside County court, a pretrial conference for Karyn McCallister, 41, of Sterling, who investigators say shook a 4-month-old girl in February 2009, causing severe head injuries, was moved to April 24. A jury trial was rescheduled for May 21.
McCallister is charged with aggravated battery of a child and reckless conduct.
