CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - The provincial court case of a woman accused of causing the death of two infants has been adjourned.
The matter of Shannon Dawn Rayner has been rescheduled for Feb. 6.
A P.E.I. judge had granted an extension for the mental health assessment of Rayner in December with the case set to return to court Monday.
Rayner is facing two counts of infanticide in separate incidents in 2014 and 2016, as well as two counts of failing to seek assistance in child birth and two counts of disposing of a child’s body with intent to conceal the fact it had been delivered.
Court documents say the offences allegedly took place between Nov. 16 and 18, 2016, and between Feb. 1 and 28, 2014. The documents allege that, in both cases, Rayner put the bodies in bags before placing them in a waste bin.
It says the babies died “within a short time’’ of birth.
