UTICA, N.Y. -- The case of the Rome mother, charged in the death of her baby, was back in Oneida County Court Thursday – without the defendant.
Brooke Renzi is charged with criminally negligent homicide in the death of her 6-month-old daughter.
Her attorney was given Thursday as a deadline to file motions.
Renzi is accused of not checking on the baby for a span of 12 hours.
Renzi's presence was not required for the proceedings Thursday.
The father of the baby, Derek Dyer, is also charged in the case. His defense is that he didn't put the baby to bed, Renzi did.
