    From the article:

    “[SBM]

    Public Defender Kimberly Schultz filed a motion last week seeking her client’s [Nakira M. Griner‘s] release from jail, arguing that in March, Daniel Griner Sr. told prosecutors he struck the boy with a belt at least four times in the days prior to the child’s death. He was not charged with a crime.

    Prosecutors were too quick to charge the mother, Schultz argued, and the father’s admission opens the possibility that he is a suspect.

    Superior Court Judge Robert Malestein denied the defense motion, finding that the new information about the father didn’t change his decision that the mother should remain jailed.

    He granted a prosecution motion, however, to extend the period to indict Griner by an additional 45 days because of the complexity of the case.

    Prosecutors recently received autopsy, anthropology and toxicology reports, Senior Assistant Prosecutor Elizabeth Vogelsong stated, which confirmed the identity of the victim and that he died of blunt force trauma. The injuries that killed the child occurred at the time of death, she said, and included multiple bone fractures.

    Other efforts to gain evidence, including from Google and Facebook, are ongoing, she said.

    [SBM]

    Schultz argued that both parents had access to the child during the time period in which prosecutors believe he was killed. She also noted that the state doesn’t really know when the child died.

    [SBM]

    Vogelsong responded that Daniel Griner Sr. was investigated. Detectives reviewed security camera video at the hospital where he works as a registered nurse to confirm he was there during his entire 12-hour shift, which covers the time period during which they think the victim died.

    ‘He was never at the house when we believe the child was killed,’ Vogelsong said. ‘Nothing in our investigation has shown that Mr. Griner Sr. was involved in the death of the child. Absolutely nothing.’

    Those poor little boys...who could beat a child who isnt even 2 yrs old with a belt...just makes me sick...sounds like the father isn't much better. I bet both little boys have been abused at one time or another

    I can't find a "good" court site for Cumberland County.

    Anyone find one? Maybe next court date stated? TIA! :)

    Sounds like that is just what the wife/her lawyers are claiming -- that the state "doesn't know" when the child died so that the father could be responsible. Until I hear from prosecutors or LE that the father was abusing the child, I'm not going to put much stock in that claim. The mom is facing charges of murdering her own child so naturally her lawyers are going to be throwing a bunch of mud at the wall to try and get at least one thing to stick, JMO.

    It appears that per state statutes, “Only defendants with a case(s) on which he or she was convicted and sentenced in Superior Court, will display in your search results.“ (BBM)
    Criminal Cases: PROMIS/Gavel Public Access

    I did find her on the Cumberland County Jail Inmate Services’ page. It lists the offenses charged with, but no court dates (at least as of today):

    @inmyhumbleopinion - another if you wouldn't mind looking up? I believe the additional 45 days they asked for should be up at the end of June. Maybe a date?

    TIA! :)
