The trial of a woman accused inducing labor and then dumping her baby into a dumpster has been moved to June.

Purvi Patel is charged with Neglect of a Dependent, a Class A felony, after police say she admitted that a baby found in a dumpster behind a restaurant in the University Crossing Shopping Center in July of 2013 was hers.

Patel's trial had initially been scheduled to start February 10, then was moved to March. On Tuesday, a judge granted a defense motion to move the trial so they could secure an expert.

A record date has been set for May 12, with the trial scheduled to begin June 6.
