SIOUX CITY, Iowa — A Sioux City man granted a new trial in the death of his daughter has pleaded not guilty to a child endangerment charge brought against him six years ago.
The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1HVgYWY ) 25-year-old Paul Hill also waived his right to a speedy trial Wednesday. He is accused of child endangerment causing death for the February 2009 death of 4-month-old Tryniti Jo Hill.
Hill was granted a new trial in January after the Iowa Court of Appeals ruled that statements Hill made to police used during his original trial were obtained in violation of his right to remain silent. He had been found guilty in June 2010 and sentenced to 50 years in prison.
His new trial date has not yet been scheduled.
