Trial Date Set for Woman Accused in Drowning Death of Stepson

A March 25 trial date has been set for a Corpus Christi woman accused in the drowning death of her six-year old stepson.

Laura Day, 47, was formally arraigned on Tuesday. She pled not guilty to charges of capital murder, causing serious bodily injury and endangering a child.

The drowning happened in the surf near Bob Hall Pier. If Day is found guilty of capital murder, there are only two possible punishments: life in prison, or the death penalty.

Day is still being held without bond in the Nueces County Jail.
