Another continuance has been granted in the case against an East Palestine man charged for allegedly injuring a 4-month-old child, with a new trial date set for July 26.
Randy Allen Wylie, 25, of 415 Alice St., appeared recently in Columbiana County Common Pleas Court where new hearing dates were set. The case had been transferred to Judge C. Ashley Pike, who agreed to reset the trial date to July 26, with a status hearing at 11:30 a.m. July 18. The trial had been scheduled for May.
Wylie was charged last year with endangering children, a second-degree felony which carries a possible sentence of two to eight years in prison upon conviction.
Court documents alleged Wylie "did recklessly abuse" the child on Sept. 1, 2009, resulting in the child suffering serious physical harm with injury to brain tissue and causing the child to suffer "a severe seizure disorder."
County assistant Prosecutor Tim McNicol said previously that "the child suffered injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome," which is defined as a form of child abuse which causes injury when an infant or small child is violently shaken, according to Wikipedia.
The incident occurred in East Palestine, with the victim receiving treatment at Akron Children's Hospital. McNicol said the child "has some serious neurological problems as a result of the injury and may have some permanent disability."

David Wright Jr., 26, of 1766 Clark Ave., pleaded guilty to burglary, a second-degree felony, with sentencing June 3 for a home invasion which left an elderly woman injured three days after Christmas. Wright was originally charged with a first-degree felony count of aggravated burglary. Court documents said he entered the Broadway Avenue residence in Wellsville on Dec. 28 and stole a purse and several pills, then pushed the 75-year-old resident, resulting in her suffering a broken rib, sprained wrist and bruised side. Her daughter, two grandchildren and a great-grandchildren were present in the home at the time.
John Graham III, 45, of 710 W. Ninth St., East Liverpool, was sentenced to nine months in prison after his probation was dishonorably terminated for violations of the terms for four counts of permitting drug abuse. He received credit for three days served in the county jail and his license was suspended for a year. Documents said the incidents when he allowed his East Liverpool residence to be used for felony drug abuse involving crack cocaine occurred in 2006.
