ATHENS, Texas (AP) - An East Texas woman has been charged in the slaying of her 4-year-old daughter whose beaten body was found in the trunk of a car.
Henderson County jail records show 25-year-old Stacie Marie Parsons of Athens was being held Tuesday on a charge of capital murder of a person under age 10.
Bond was set at $2 million for Parsons, who was arrested Monday after allegedly walking into the Athens Police Department to report her daughter's death. The body of Victoria Wyatt was in a vehicle at the family's home.
Police say the girl suffered head and chest trauma. An autopsy was ordered.
Sheriff's Chief Deputy Dan Parker said Tuesday that investigators have not released a possible motive in the case.
He had no information on an attorney for Parsons.
