Stinson’s pretrial hearing Tuesday was canceled and so was that original trial date that was set for March 2. Her new trial date is set for August 10.
Stinson is accused of killing her two-year-old son Jordan Belliveau in 2018. The 2-year-old was found dead in a wooden area of Largo on September 4 after Stinson had reported him missing.
She originally told Largo police that she had accepted a ride from a man who she said had kidnapped Jordan. Police sent out an Amber Alert; however, Jordan was found dead a few days later.
Stinson later told police that she hit Jordan, causing his head to hit a wall and resulting in a seizure.
Jordan died a few hours later. The medical examiner determined the cause of death was from blunt force trauma.

If convicted Stinson faces a mandatory life sentence.
Her next pretrial hearing is March 25.
