Preliminary hearings were postponed Wednesday for three women charged in connection with alleged physical abuse of children at a now closed church day care center in Plum.

Eileen Marie Andrews, 44, of Verona, is charged with four counts of endangerment and two counts of simple assault stemming from alleged incidents that occurred in 2011 and 2012 at the former Genesis Child Care Center that had been run by Pittsburgh East Community Church on Saltsburg Road.

Also, Terry Lynn Bachner, 43, of Murrysville and Angela Marie Russo, 49, of Plum, each are charged with two counts of endangerment and two counts of failing to report the abuse.

A secretary in Plum District Judge Linda Zucco's office said a new date for the hearings has not been selected.The center was shut down in April by the church when reports of abuse surfaced.
