Court proceedings are continuing for a central Missouri mother and her boyfriend who are charged in the fatal beating of a toddler.  28-year-old Jamie Litton and 23-year-old Thomas Presley initially blamed the child’s death on a hit-and-run accident, but were later charged with first degree murder and abuse of a child resulting in death.  Litton’s case saw a charge of venue from Morgan to Cass County although her trial in August of 2015 will be heard in Morgan County.  Both Presley and Litton will next appear for initial pretrial conference on the 13th of November.
