An arraignment Wednesday was postponed until June 26 for a woman who has been ordered to stand trial accused of murder in the death of an 18-month-old girl she was baby-sitting at her west Modesto home last year.
In the death of Alexandra Medina-Cisneros, 33-year-old Maria Elena Torres also faces a charge of assault on a child younger than 8 years old.
The defendant has told investigators the child accidentally fell down the stairs from her second-floor apartment.
Authorities have said the child's injuries indicate that Alexandra died at Torres' hands.
The defendant remains in custody as she awaits trial.
