Judge David Mouton approved a motion from Vaden's attorney Tracey Martin today in Jasper County Circuit Court to withdraw her earlier request for a speedy trial. The prosecution had no objection.
The next hearing in the case is scheduled for 9 a.m. May 22.
Vaden is charged with second degree murder and felony child abuse for allegedly committing the abuse Nov. 30 that led to Jayda Kyle's death three days later at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City.

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR READERS
The Turner Report/Inside Joplin continues to report news that is not available from other area media sources, but this is a one-man operation and it takes money, especially to provide in-depth, investigative reporting, as well as important news about our community, crime, courts, and to continue to provide free obituaries and not charge grieving families hundreds of dollars for something that was once considered news (and is still is at the Turner Report/Inside Joplin.)
Currently, the Turner Report receives approximately 14,000 unique visitors a day, Inside Joplin between 11,000 and 12,000 and Inside Joplin Obituaries about 6,000. Of that total, the number that have subscribed or made contributions is barely over 100.
At one point a few months ago, it appeared that even with the small number of contributors, the Turner Report/Inside Joplin, was going to be able to continue at the same pace, with the same amount of content and perhaps even more. Since that time, as Turner Report readers are aware, my budget has been thrown off considerably, due in part to unexpected car payments I am having to make thanks to an uninsured driver and I will soon be incurring considerably more costs of a major nature due to something I have delayed doing for several years, but which circumstances are requiring me to do now. (More information about that will be revealed later.)
Subscriptions are $30 for a year, $3 per month or $1 per week by PayPal or credit card if you use the PayPal button below.
