Did 2-year-old Clifford Dotson have a genetic disorder?
That question is serious enough that Circuit Court Judge Mike Pemberton saw fit to grant a defense motion for a continuance in Matthew Dotson’s murder trial, which was scheduled to start Monday, Nov. 28, in Roane County Criminal Court.
A new trial date has not been set.
Clifford died on May 3, 2012. Authorities have accused his parents, Matthew and Amanda Dotson, of starving him to death.
They face first-degree murder and other charges in the case.
