LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The man accused of killing his girlfriend’s son, who was expected to begin his jury trial next week, will now wait to face a judge until October.
Brandon Toseland is charged with 12 felonies, including murder, child abuse, kidnapping, and battery domestic violence.
Toseland, 36, is accused of killing 4-year-old Mason Dominguez and abusing the boy’s sister, who was 6 years old at the time. The boy was last seen by his mother on Dec. 11, 2021.
His trial was scheduled to take place Dec. 5, months after Mason’s body was found hidden inside a freezer at Toseland’s northeast valley home in February.
That trial is now scheduled to take place on Oct. 16, 2023 following a motion to move the trial to a later date.
Prosecutors said a coroner’s report showed Mason, Toseland’s girlfriend’s son, suffered severe internal injuries to his abdomen.
Toseland is facing the death penalty.
He remained in the Clark County Detention Center Tuesday without bail.
