A joint preliminary hearing is delayed for a couple charged in connection with the shooting of their two-year-old son by his four year old brother.

The couple from the Cochranton area are 23-year-old Mark Whitman and his 23- year-old wife, Tiffany Whitman. They are charged with endangering the welfare of children and several other counts.

In April, their 4-year-old son found a gun in the home and fired it, resulting in their two year old being shot in the face. This is the fourth time the hearing has been postponed. It is now scheduled for September 17th.
