Assessment complete of Charlottetown woman charged in deaths of two infants
The Crown says the psychiatric assessment of a Charlottetown woman accused of causing the death of two infants is complete.
Shannon Dawn Rayner is facing two counts of infanticide in separate incidents in 2014 and 2016, as well as two counts of failing to seek assistance in child birth and two counts of disposing of a child’s body with intent to conceal the fact it had been delivered.
Prosecutor Valerie Moore says Rayner appeared in court on Friday with her lawyer Thane MacEachern, where he requested an adjournment.
The case is scheduled to return to court on April 9.
There had been several delays in completion of the assessment.
Court documents say the offences allegedly took place between Nov. 16 and 18, 2016, and between Feb. 1 and 28, 2014.
