SIOUX CITY (KTIV) -- The trial of a Sioux City man, who's charged in the 2018 death of a 19-month-old child, has been pushed back to October.

Court documents say 23-year-old Tayvon Davis has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.

His trial was scheduled to begin on Feb. 18. It has been pushed back to Oct. 27.

Court records show, in July and August of 2018, a 19-month-old child under Davis's care suffered an elbow injury, frequently vomited, and stopped walking.

The child was brought to a local hospital after she was unresponsive with what were described as "grave injuries." She died days later.

An autopsy determined the little girl died due to complications from multiple blunt force injuries.
