Doctor John Merrifield and his wife Diane were suppose to go on trial Monday on accusations that their negligence contributed to the death of a toddler. But the trial was delayed.
The Merrifields are the parents of Michael Merrifield -- who is charged in the murder of 2-year-old Logan Goodall. Prosecutors say Doctor Merrifield was treating Logan and didn't report signs of abuse. Members from West Virginia Against Abuse demonstrated outside the courthouse before Monday's scheduled trial.
The new trial date has been set for November 5th.
