BROCKVILLE – A trial for two women, accused of desecrating a child’s grave, has been put off until the fall.

A two day judge-only trial for Haley Peyman of Kingston, Ont. and Katherine Collins of Elizabethtown-Kitley was originally supposed to start Wednesday (May 3).

The trial has now been set for late October.

The reason for the delay is not known.

Collins and Peyman are each facing a charge of committing an indecent act.

Police laid the charges in September 2016 after learning two people had urinated on the grave of a 3-year-old boy at the Oakland Cemetery on County Road 2 during the summer.

Committing an indecent act carries a maximum sentence of two years in jail.
