A man accused of felony child endangerment has waived his right to a speedy trial, according to online court documents.

Jorge Perez, 21, is accused of beating Marcus Balderas to death in April. Prosecutors dismissed an aggravated-misdemeanor charge against Perez in July.

Mireya Balderas is also facing felony child-endangerment charges in connection to the case.

Balderas previously waived her right to a speedy trial in August.

Perez’s pretrial conference is scheduled for Nov. 30, with the trial scheduled for Dec. 12.
