EL DORADO, Kan. (AP) _ Prosecutors have charged a southeastern
Kansas woman with first-degree murder in the death of her
KAKE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/HlzZTr ) 23-year-old Alyssa Haag
made a first appearance Wednesday in Butler County District Court.
The El Dorado (doh-RAY'-doh) woman remains held on $500,000 bond,
with a preliminary hearing scheduled May 9.
The charge stems from what investigators believe was the abuse
death of Jayla Haag. The toddler died last week at a Wichita
hospital, where she was treated for injuries the mother said were
caused when the girl fell down the stairs.
Haag did not yet have a lawyer. No phone number was listed for
her in El Dorado.
