HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - A special judge has agreed to delay the trial of a suspended Garland County circuit judge charged with negligent homicide in the July 24 death of his toddler son, who died after being left in a hot car for several hours.

Attorneys for Judge Wade Naramore argued against the delay in court Friday, saying they were ready to proceed with the scheduled June 14 trial date. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported (https://bit.ly/1UBi2o2 ) that special judge John Langston approved the delay, but not because prosecutors had asked for more time to prepare.

Prosecutors had asked for a nine-week delay. The judge ordered both sides to “make allowances” and find a new date.

Naramore is charged in the death of his 17-month-old, Thomas, who died from excessive heat.
