Brenda Wing, the Vader woman accused in the 2014 death of 3-year-old Jasper Henderling-Warner, appeared in Lewis County Superior Court Thursday, but a hearing to review the status of her case was pushed back to May 2.
Wing is charged with homicide by abuse along with her husband, Danny Wing. Both pleaded guilty and were sentenced to more than 30 years in prison, but a wrong offender score calculation resulted in a state court of appeals ruling granting both Wings the option to withdraw their guilty pleas.
Danny Wing opted not to withdraw his guilty plea last September and is scheduled to be resentenced on May 28.
Brenda Wing, meanwhile, did withdraw her guilty plea. Her attorney, Shane O’Rourke said in a previous interview that her defense will analyze her alleged level of involvement in Henderling-Warner’s death.
Brenda Wing’s jury trial is scheduled to start July 22.
According to court documents and their own statements, Danny and Brenda Wing had taken in Henderling-Warner along with their own children more than two months before he died in October 2014.
An autopsy found that he had abuse-related injuries that were weeks to months old, It concluded that his primary cause of death was “chronic battered child syndrome.”
