KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- There has been a change to Heather Jensen's trial date.
According to Robert Mathena, the grandfather of the Jensen boys, the date has been pushed back to Jan. 21, 2014.
It was originally scheduled to begin Oct. 28, 2013.
Mathena was called into court Tuesday afternoon, when he was notified of the changes.
The change was based on the judge granting a continuance requested by the defense, to have the opportunity to appeal a ruling of the court as to an evidence issue.
Jensen is accused in the criminally negligent homicide of her two young son's, William and Tyler, November 2012 on the Grand Mesa.
Both died from hyperthermia, after authorities say Jensen left them alone in a vehicle for an extended period of time with the heat on.
