UPDATE: A case that hit the Rutherford County courts on Friday involving a mother who was allegedly involved in a fatal DUI related accident that left her 3 year old son dead, will see another date in court this August.
Connie Bland Reyes who was set to make a plea on Friday (7/21/17) will head back to court on August 31, 2017 after lawyers asked for her case to be reset, which will give them more time to prepare.
