Magistrate Peter Law set the trial date after the prosecution asked for time to prepare and to contact the witness.

The prosecution did not mention whether it had received two psychiatric reports on the mental condition of defendant Angelita Labador that it was supposedly waiting for previously.

Officers later nabbed Labador, who was said to be hiding nearby.

Labador is staying in a shelter run by the International Social Services Hong Kong, which had also assisted her since her arrest.

Her child is in the custody of the Social Welfare Department, the court was told.
