AUSTIN -- A woman convicted and sent to Death Row for the death of a young boy nearly 20 years ago was back in a Central Texas courtroom.

Cathy Lynn Henderson was in court briefly for a pre-trial hearing Thursday. She was sentenced to death in 1995 for the death of Brandon Baugh. He died from a head injury he suffered while Henderson was babysitting.

She claims it was an accidental fall.

At the first trial, the medical examiner testified it could not have happened that way, but later acknowledged new research which shows an accident was possible.

In December the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals granted a district judge's request for a retrial.
