Cassie Smith Authorities in Las Vegas are waiting for autopsy findings prior to proceeding with charges against the mother of a 3-year-old kid found dead on Labor Day at a remote area near Lake Mead, and the lady’s partner.

A judge on Monday reset a hearing for Jan. 31 on murder and child abuse claims versus 20-year-old Cassie Renee Smith and 41-year-old Joshua Oxford.

Smith and Oxford were apprehended Sept. 3, a day after Smith reported her kid, Daniel Theriot, went missing at a Las Vegas park.

Cops launched a search while distributing a photo of the blond boy with a broad smile using a pirate costume.

Cops say Smith later on explained Oxford hitting the kid and putting warm water on him, and that Smith’s 2-year-old son also showed signs of physical abuse.
