WICHITA, Kansas – A Wichita mother and her boyfriend are charged with first-degree murder in the death of her 3-year-old daughter.
Prosecutors say the girl, Emma Krueger, suffered beatings for up to a month before her mother called 911 on June 2. The child died Wednesday. Doctors told police the girl had severe bruising on her body.
The couple was charged Monday. They are being held on $150,000 bond each, with preliminary hearings scheduled for June 24.
They both asked for court-appointed attorneys.
