The preliminary hearing for a Quapaw woman charged with first degree murder-child abuse for the death of her boyfriend's 17-month old son earlier this year has been continued until July.

The hearing for Skye Reece was set for Wednesday, but an Ottawa County judge granted a continuance request until July 10, 2012.

According to police report, Reece claimed Lanceton Hollenbeck fell off his bed.  Authorities believe his injuries were too severe to be an accident.
