DIXON – The final pretrial conference for a Dixon man accused of causing the death of his 3-month-old daughter was delayed once again.
Charles T. George, 35, was expected to either make a plea deal or have a trial date scheduled during a hearing Thursday. Instead, the defense’s motion for a continuance was granted. The final pretrial conference was moved to Oct. 10.
George is charged with two counts of aggravated battery of a child, aggravated domestic battery, and involuntary manslaughter. Police say in September 2010 he shook his daughter, Tamari, before dropping her to the ground. She died 5 days later at a Rockford hospital.
George is in Lee County Jail on $1 million bond.
