A new hearing date of March 3, 2014, has been set for the couple accused of starving their son.
Matthew and Amanda Dotson are charged with first-degree murder in the death of 2-year-old Clifford.
Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockton reported the tot weighed only 12 pounds when he died in May 2012. Investigators said a preliminary autopsy indicated the child died of severe malnutrition.
Matthew Dotson was appointed a new attorney, Kent Booher, in July, after former attorney, Joseph Lodato asked to withdraw from the case.
