QUINCY -- The trial of a Quincy man charged in the January death of an infant has been delayed.

Travis J. Wiley was set to go to trial on three counts of first-degree murder and one count of aggravated battery to a child Nov. 5, but the case was taken off the jury trial docket after his attorney, Ryan Parker, requested a continuance.

The case was set for a status hearing Nov. 7.

Wiley, 30, is accused of shaking the infant girl, identified in court by her initials, on Jan. 20. The child died Jan. 22 at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital in St. Louis from shaken baby syndrome.

He was arrested June 29 after a six-month investigation.

Wiley pleaded not guilty to the charges Aug. 15. If convicted, he faces the possibility of a life sentence.

He continues to be held in the Adams County Jail on $5 million bond.
