DICKSON, Tenn. (WTVF) — A judge has denied Joseph Daniels' request to be moved to another facility.
Joe Clyde Daniels’ father appeared in Dickson County court Thursday where his attorney again asked for him to be moved from Riverbend Maximum Security prison to a special needs facility.
Defense attorney Jake Lockert said his client has lost more than 50 pounds and suffers from a psychological condition that requires special care. Lockert asked once before for Daniels to be moved but the request was also denied.
Both Daniels and his wife, Krystal, face charges in the death of their son, Joe Clyde. The child's father is charged with homicide and his mother was charged with neglect.
A trial date has yet to be set in the case.
Jury selection is expected to begin in February 2020.
