One half of a duo charged with selling methamphetamine out of the Kearney trailer they shared with their five kids has had her case continued for a second time.

Sherri Burrows, a 38-year-old mother of two, initially pleaded not guilty to the five felony charges against her and was scheduled to make her final plea last month.

But that hearing was pushed back to Friday, after her attorney asked for more time.

And Friday, that plea was delayed yet again, the defense saying they want to wait until her co–defendant, 32–year–old Veronica Ring, is sentenced.

The women were arrested in November after police found 10 ounces of methamphetamine and various drug paraphernalia in the trailer where their five young children also lived.

Ring was convicted in the U.S. District Court of Omaha after pleading guilty to two felony counts of possession of 50 grams or more of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

She will be sentenced June 28, and faces 10 to 13 years behind bars.

Burrows is charged with two counts of intentional child abuse with no injury, possession of a controlled substance, delivery of a controlled substance and conspiracy to commit a class 2 felony.

If convicted, she faces up to 85 years. Her next court date hasn't been set.
