Child murder case continued again
Placeholder Image

Torres and Candice Boles, a couple indicted in the death of their 3-year-old daughter, Andraia, were set to appear Monday in Liberty County Superior Court, but their hearing was continued and will take place later.
Candice Boles is accused of one count each of cruelty to children and being a party to murder. Her husband, Torres Boles, faces one count of felony murder and one count of cruelty to children. The duo was to have a motions hearing before Liberty County Superior Court Judge Charles P. Rose.
This is the second continuance in the case. Previously, the Boles were set to appear July 11 in Liberty County Superior Court, but proceedings were delayed after it was determined that Candice Boles no longer had the representation of a public attorney.
On Aug. 12, the Boles waived their rights to a formal arraignment and entered pleas of not guilty.
Public defender John Ely, who is representing the couple, previously requested that the court require Torres Boles to undergo a mental evaluation before the trial.
Rose granted the request, but there has been no news on whether the evaluation was administered.
