Mary and Sandi Taylor are charged with reckless abuse of a child after leaving two children in a car in Portales last July. One of the children died.

According to the Eastern New Mexico news, the defense wants to bring an expert witness to testify on "forgotten child syndrome." The state wants to know more about this witness.

A hearing next month could decide whether that defense witness can testify. The trial is scheduled for September.
