Woman indicted in death of daughter beaten by 8-year-old boy

Posted: Updated:

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- An Alabama woman whose daughter was beaten to death while police said she and a friend were at a club has been indicted for reckless manslaughter.

   Court documents made public Tuesday say a Jefferson County grand jury has indicted 27-year-old Katerra Lewis in the death of 1-year-old Kelci Lewis.

   Birmingham police have said Lewis and a friend left several young children home alone when they went out in October. Police have said an 8-year-old boy who was babysitting beat Kelci when she started crying.

   A judge in January dismissed a reckless manslaughter charge against Lewis, saying probable cause didn't exist to support the charge but told prosecutors they could present the case to a grand jury.

   Lewis' attorney Emory Anthony has said his client wasn't involved in Kelci's death.
