  • The trial date of Oct. 29 for Alyssa Haag was canceled last week after Haag, who had filed a motion to dismiss her murder case, withdrew that motion on Thursday.
    Haag is charged in the first-degree murder of her daughter, 18-month-old Jayla.
    Haag's boyfriend, Justin Edwards, had also been charged with murder but those charges were dismissed last month. Those charges were dismissed due to the incomplete autopsy report, which has now been completed.
    Haag will next appear in court on Dec. 3. Her attorney had told the judge they were looking at plea negotiations, although there have not been any formal talks yet.
