STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - An arraignment has been postponed for a Steamboat Springs woman accused of leaving her 3-year-old son alone at home for three days before he died.

Steamboat Today reports (https://bit.ly/1u1TYLg ) Meghan McKeon was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, but her attorney asked the judge to postpone the hearing so prosecutors could review a report recently received from an expert involved in the case.

McKeon, who is charged with two counts of child abuse resulting in death, is accused of leaving her son, Austin Davis, at home while she went to work and stayed at a boyfriend’s house. On March 27, she went home to find the boy unresponsive. He died at a hospital a couple of hours later.

McKeon is scheduled to be back in court Nov. 5.
