SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A trial has been canceled as the Murray woman who was accused of fatally shaking an infant while she was watching him in 2011 has died.

Court documents show 39-year-old Jennifer Duran Martinez died Jan. 10 of natural causes, leading to the cancellation of her April murder trial.

Martinez has been accused of first-degree murder in the death of Kaysen Calhoun. Court documents show Martinez was watching Kaysen before his death on Sept. 22, 2011. A medical examiner concluded the 4-month-old died from someone shaking him.

Martinez’s defense attorney said an initial report showed Kaysen’s trauma happened 10 to 12 hours before his death, before Martinez was watching him.
