Cara M. Lloyd
Updated October 2, 2012: A Frontenac, Kansas woman accused of killing her 13 month old son has been bound over for trial.
Cara Lloyd is charged with first degree murder and is custody on a $500,000 bond in the Crawford County jail.
The child died in October 2011 and Lloyd was arrested and charged with first degree murder in April 2012.
Lloyd is scheduled to appear in court on December 10, 2012.
Updated April 18, 2012: Crawford County attorney Michael Gayoso confirms a woman charged in the death of a toddler is seven months pregnant.
Cara M. Lloyd of Frontenac was arrested and charged on Tuesday in the death of her 13 month old son, who died in October 2011.
Gayoso tells us the five month delay was because officers wanted to conduct a proper investigation, they were waiting for the final autopsy, and the investigation is still ongoing. Gayoso says he received paperwork on the investigation last week.
Lloyd has other children but Gayoso says he can not reveal their location at this time.
Lloyd's next hearing is scheduled for August 7.
