CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Two people charged in the 2010 death of an 17-month old girl will be tried together.

The girl's father, Zyriah Schlitter, 24, and Amy Jo Parmer, 27, both face first degree murder and child endangerment charges in the death of Kamryn Schlitter in March 2010.  Authorities say Kamryn died of head trauma.

Zyriah had requested that his trial be separated from Parmer's because he believes that Parmer will implicate him in Kamryn's death.

Judge Marsha Beckelman says there is no confession from Parmer that would implicate him.

The trial is scheduled to start on May 29.
