Court documents showed Drew Weehler-Smith’s first degree murder trial was expected to start Monday. A new date hasn’t been announced.
Weehler-Smith also faces a charge of neglect of a dependent person.
Police say Weehler-Smith was watching Gabriel McFarland in April when Gabriel’s mother found him alone and unresponsive.
He died at the hospital.
A medical examiner said he died from abusive head trauma.
Earlier this month he was arrested again for violating his pre-trial terms by drinking alcohol and breaking curfew.
