MOAB, Utah (AP) -- A woman's trial over accusations she strangled her 21/2-year-old daughter has been postponed.

Wendy Bullock's first-degree murder trial was originally scheduled for September but a continuance was granted Tuesday until November.

Police found the toddler "unresponsive" Jan. 2 in the back seat of Bullock's vehicle on Interstate 70 near Thompson Springs, 170 miles southeast of Salt Lake City and 30 miles from the Colorado border.

Bullock had pulled into an interstate pullout and parked near another stopped car. She allegedly then asked that motorist for razor blades, saying she planned to commit suicide, police said.

The other driver, a Colorado man, alerted authorities who found the girl dead when they arrived.
