MODESTO -- A San Joaquin Valley mother will stand trial for the death of her 2-year-old daughter, who a pathologist testified had not been fed for several days before she was discovered.
Brandy Lee Rose Devine was arrested in July after police were called to her home in Turlock and found the little girl dead in her crib.
The Modesto Bee reports (http://bit.ly/W2ICK3 ) Stanislaus County Superior Court Judge Dawna Reeves ruled Monday that there is evidence for Devine to stand trial for murder and willful cruelty to a child. The 25-year-old Devine also will stand trial on charges of using meth and an enhancement alleging that she inflicted great bodily injury on the child.
Devine is scheduled to be arraigned March 18. She pleaded not guilty to murder, child abuse and possession of methamphetamine in July.
