Criminal proceedings have been stayed against a woman accused of not providing the necessities of life in relation to the death of a child.

Amanda Ledieu, 36, of the Rocky Mountain House area was charged by police investigating the death of a six-year-old boy who fell into a sewer lagoon.

Ledieu was scheduled for trial by judge and jury in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench, starting on Monday and running through to Friday.

However, the trial was abandoned on July 11 when the Crown prosecutor stayed proceedings. The Crown is not required to provide reasons for a stay, which means proceedings remain in limbo for up to a year. Proceedings are discharged if no action is taken within that year.
