NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The prosecution of a Connecticut woman charged with killing her two children by poisoning them with antihistamines is being delayed because of a backlog in state police investigations.
A prosecutor told a judge Monday that state police are "busier than normal" and haven't turned over evidence to the prosecution or defense.
LeRoya Moore is being held on $2 million bail on murder and other charges in the deaths of 7-year-old Daaron Moore and 6-year-old Aleisha Moore. Their bodies were found in their East Haven home June 2. Authorities ruled they died of an antihistamine overdose.
The New Haven Register (http://bit.ly/1JwBbDE ) reports that public defender Tejas Bhatt says he can't make any decisions about the case because he hasn't seen the evidence.
The case was continued until Sept. 28.
