Still No Trial For Socialite Gigi Jordan, Accused Of Killing Her Autistic Son

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - Fifteen months after a socialite was accused of murdering her 8-year-old autistic son in Manhattan's Peninsula Hotel, she still has no trial date.

Judge Charles Solomon voiced a suspicion that Gigi Jordan's frequent change of attorney is all about delay.

The latest team of three has not even revealed whether they plan an insanity defense or not.

Attorney Ron Kuby told the judge that the new team consists of himself, a lead attorney from Washington, and star attorney Alan Dershowitz.

The movie "Reversal of Fortune" was based on Dershowitz and his successful appeal in the case of Claus von Bülow, who'd been convicted of attempting to murder his socialite wife Sunny - who survived in a coma for 28 years.

Judge Solomon informed Kuby that he just wants to set a trial date for Jordan without working around the schedule of the famous Dershowitz.

Kuby told the judge not to worry because Dershowitz would just be there for cameo appearances.

The judge seemed less than thrilled.

Jordan is accused of feeding her son an overdose of prescription pills.
