QUINCY — The trial of a Quincy man charged in the 2018 death of an infant is being delayed.

Travis J. Wiley’s case was on the December jury trial docket, but the case was removed after a report from a forensic pathologist was received.

During a Wednesday status hearing in Adams County Circuit Court, Wiley’s attorney, Ryan Parker, said a report from Dr. Jane Turner of St. Louis was received, and a copy was provided to the Adams County state’s attorney’s office.

Josh Jones, lead trial attorney for the state’s attorney’s office, said Turner’s reports, as well findings from the St. Louis medical examiner’s office, would be reviewed by Dr. Scott Denton, a forensic pathologist from Bloomington.

Wiley, 32, faces three counts of first-degree murder and one count of aggravated battery in the Jan. 22, 2018, death of an infant girl who is only identified in court records by her initials.

He is accused of shaking the infant on Jan. 20, 2018, and she died two days later at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis. Wiley was arrested June 20, after a six-month investigation.

Judge Robert Adrian previously approved a total of $7,150 to have Turner review the cases.

Wiley is set to return to court Nov. 25 for a status hearing.

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