Mom Faces Child Abuse Trial

by Melissa Langbehn

WAUSAU (WAOW)--The Rhinelander woman who's child died of a drug overdose now faces a trial. Prosecutors charged 21 year old Amanda Bodoh with felony child abuse in the  death of her 10 month old daughter Peyton.

Investigators say Bodoh left the girl at home with her father who was known to use drugs. Court records show that the girl ate a morphine pill and later died. The girl's father faces a reckless homicide charge.

During a preliminary hearing in Oneida County Court the judge found there is enough evidence for Bodoh to go before a jury.

Her bond has been adjusted to $5,000 cash. If released from jail she cannot leave the state of Wisconsin.

Her arraignment to enter a plea to the charge is set for June 15 at 2:30 pm.
