JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- There will be new trial dates set in the murder and sexual battery cases against Cristian Fernandez, Jacksonville's youngest murder suspect.
All the previous dates have been stricken from the record due to last week's ruling over evidence.
A judge ruled in favor of the defense to suppress the video interrogations of Fernandez. The boy, 12, at the time of his arrest, was read his Miranda rights, but a judge decided Fernandez didn't fully understand what they meant.
Fernandez is accused of beating his 2-year-old brother to death in 2011. Fernandez is charged with first-degree murder in that case.
Fernandez is also facing one count of sexual battery and his trial was set to start this month.
But the State Attorney's office filed an appeal to the suppression of evidence ruling. The move pushes everything back.
The next pre-trial hearing will be held on August 30.
