    It sure does take a long time to get through some of these court systems. Her trial should have been sometime in the summer of 2009, at least! It has been a year and 4 months since she was arrested. WOW!

    November 2010:

    Amy Tunnell was charged last year with first degree murder for the death of her three month old son, Zane.

    Prosecutors dropped that charge last Friday, saying they did not feel they had the evidence needed to move forward with the case.

    November 2010:

    Prosecutors dropped charges against Amy Tunnell, 21, after a pathologist changes his mind, saying there was no indication of foul play...

    Prosecutors say unless new evidence indicates otherwise, they don't anticipate refiling charges.

    Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland said in April that Tunnell later admitted to shaking the baby.

    Wonder what changed their mind, it appears that the baby was abused by the mother.

    I thought maybe LE had interviewed her for hours and hours and pressured her, and she was probably already feeling the guilt that all mother feel when their baby dies.
