LANCASTER — Arraignment for a Lancaster mother accused of murdering her seven-month-old son more than a year ago, was postponed Tuesday, until next year, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said.
Anaiyah Elise Perry, 21, has been charged with one count each of murder and assault on a child causing death in the Nov. 6, 2018 death of her son, identified by the District Attorney’s office
as Royal M.
She was arrested in September and remains jailed on $2 million bail.
Perry was scheduled for arraignment Tuesday at the Antelope Valley Courthouse, but the proceedings have been postponed until Jan. 30.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call on Nov. 6, 2018 in the 44000 block of Moccasin Place, in the vicinity of Avenue J-8 and 45th Street West in Lancaster.
They found Perry’s son with head and neck injuries, and he was airlifted to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where he died the next day, according to the District Attorney’s office.
If convicted as charged, she faces a possible maximum sentence of life in prison.
The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
