There is no statute of limitations on murder, Dolan stressed, so the case could wait until Lauer has healed.
Kristen Lauer, 23, left the baby unrestrained in a two-seater sports car, prosecutors allege in Riverside County court documents.
Before the crash, Lauer was most widely known as a star volleyball player at Desert Christian Academy in Bermuda Dunes.

Drop in diesel car demand could put brakes on autos finance boom
A sharp fall in used car prices could trigger a spike in leasing prices, which could further dampen demand and increase defaults.
This is turn is beginning to weigh on used car prices.
That is starting to hit demand hard, with new diesel car registrations in April dropping 19 percent in Germany and 27 percent in Britain, according to data this week.
If residual values fall more than expected, customers will have less money to buy a new car – potentially hitting demand for all new vehicles, petrol as well as diesel.
Leasing and finance contracts are both generally priced using an assumption of stable residual values.

Tax changes and diesel fears put heavy brake on April UK car sales
We therefore expect demand to stabilise over the year as the turbulence created by these tax changes decreases,” Hawes added.
The SMMT reported that demand was lower across differing types of buyers with registrations by private buyers, businesses and large fleets falling -28.4%, -21.0% and -12.3% respectively.
In a press release accompanying the data, SMMT Chief Executive Mike Hawes said a slowdown was to be expected.
“It’s important to note that the market remains at record levels as customers still see many benefits in purchasing a new car.
“With the rush to register new cars and avoid VED tax rises before the end of March, as well as fewer selling days due to the later Easter, April was always going to be much slower,” he said.
