UPDATE: Woman Charged In Toddler's Death Appears In Court
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A Boise woman has made a brief court appearance to hear a grand jury indictment on charges that she killed a 2-year-old boy.
The Idaho Statesman reports that 4th District Magistrate Richard Schmidt did not allow a bond argument and did not acknowledge Boise attorney John Meienhofer, who was hired by the family to represent Katherine Stanfield on Wednesday.
Boise police say Stanfield was caring for Wyatt, the son of her future son-in-law, last Dec. 11 when paramedics were called to the home. Emergency workers found the child unresponsive and rushed him
to a hospital where he died.
Stanfield's daughter Stacie Duval and her fiance Lance Fesler, Wyatt's father say they believed she is innocent.
Schmidt set her next appearance for Tuesday and said she could argue for bond reduction then.
