WICHITA, Kansas – A Wichita mother will stand trial after the death of her daughter in a house fire.

A judge made the decision Thursday after hearing witnesses in the case of Ruthie Bell.

Police say Bell left three of her children home alone in July.

A fire started in their home and Bell’s 6-year-old daughter, Jakara Dickson, was fatally injured.

Bell will go on trial in December on three counts of aggravated endangering a child.
