The trial dates for the five suspects in the death of 16-year-old Sabrina Ray of Perry were recently unified.

The trials for Marc, Misty, and Justin Ray, along with Carla and Josie Bousman were initially scheduled at various times this fall. However, all trials have now been moved and will commence on October 30th. The five individuals are each being charged in connection to the May 12th death of Sabrina, who was the adopted daughter of Marc and Misty. Sabrina was found dead in their home, and the State Medical Examiner determined she died of severe malnutrition and abuse. She weighed 56 pounds at the time of her death.

According to court documents, Carla, the mother of Misty and the adopted grandmother of Sabrina, went before the judge for a pretrial conference Friday morning. She had filed a motion to be released from custody for medical reasons. Her request was denied, and she remains at the Dallas County Jail on $500,000 bond. Court documents state she will receive any necessary medical treatment from the health care service provider that has contracted with the jail.
