Tiffany Klapheke, 23, was arrested in August 2012 after she called 911 and first responders found her toddler – Tamryn – unresponsive on Dyess Air Force Base.

She is charged with first-degree felony injury to a child. If convicted, she could be sentenced from five to 99 years – or life – in prison.

ABILENE, Texas -

The trial for Tiffany Klapheke has been pushed back.

The former Dyess wife and mother is charged with injury to a child in connection with the August 2012 death of her toddler Tamryn.  An autopsy ruled Tamryn Klapheke died of neglect.

104th District Judge Lee Hamilton has set a new trial date of Sept. 30.  The original trial date was July 15.

However, Klapheke's attorney has requested a change of venue and Hamilton will hear arguments on that request on Aug. 9.

Tiffany Klapheke is in Taylor County Jail on $500,000 bond.
