The trial of Jevon Wameling has been delayed.

The trial, originally scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 30, has since been postponed to sometime in February. Oneida County Court Judge Barry M. Donalty, who was assigned to the case, will be out of town on that date.

Wameling faces 7-and-a-half to 15 years in prison for manslaughter in the death of his 9-month-old son Levon. The boy was reported missing on June 11, nearly two weeks after his May 29 disappearance. His body was found in the Mohawk River on Sept. 26, and had apparently suffered a head injury. Authorities have not yet determined a cause of death.

Wameling also faces unrelated charges of conspiracy and burglary.
