WELLINGTON, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas woman charged with fatally beating and stabbing her 10-year-old son was granted a court continuance so her defense attorney could become familiar with the case.

At a scheduling hearing Thursday, court-appointed defense attorney Mike Brown said he hadn’t had enough time to meet with 33-year-old Lindsey Nichole Blansett. A new court date was set for Jan. 8.

Blansett is charged with first-degree murder in the death Sunday of her son, Caleb, at their home in Wellington. Court records indicate she told police she was concerned about her son’s future and wanted him to “go to heaven tonight.”

Caleb Blansett’s funeral is scheduled for 3 p.m. Saturday at First Christian Church in Wellington. A visitation is scheduled for 1-8 p.m. Friday at Day Funeral Home.
