Fassler murder trial rescheduled

DIXON – It will be at least a year before a Dixon woman stands trial on charges connected to the death of her 7-year-old stepson.

The trial for Tiffany Fassler was moved Wednesday to Sept. 8, 2014, in Lee County Court. It originally was scheduled to begin April 28.

Lee County State's Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller cited the unavailability of one of her experts as the reason for the date change.

Fassler, 37, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and four counts of aggravated battery to a child in the death of Colton Fassler.

Prosecutors say that on Dec. 30, 2010, she kicked Colton in the chest, causing him to hit his head on a metal vanity. He suffered brain damage and died nearly a year later.
