VAN NUYS ( —  A local family will have to wait a little longer to see what happens to a former nanny accused of harming their son nearly three years ago.

Gilbert and Lori Samora are frustrated that the case against their former nanny has been delayed again.

“We want this over with. I mean we want to move on with our lives,” Gilbert said.

“It’s heartbreaking. It just makes you feel so hurt that your son can’t get a little bit of justice,” Lori said.

Monica Rezonable is accused of shaking then 3-month-old son, Calin Samora, in October of 2013, leaving him with brain damage and seizures.

At almost 3, he can’t walk or talk. “She purposely viciously attacked a 3-month-old,” Lori said.

Rezonable faces up to 12 years behind bars, but the case was delayed for another week.

“We walked into this thinking that she was going to want to plead guilty and get six years,” Gilbert said.

The couple, now the parents of 4-month-old twins, has been to court multiple times.

The Samoras want Rezonable to plead guilty or not guilty and go to trial.

“She did this, and she ruined the rest of his life,” Lori said as she cried. “How she should even have two and a half years of freedom and not seen justice?”

The Samoras will be back in court next week hoping to begin the process of closing their son’s case.
