MADISON COUNTY, Neb. -- A Norfolk woman has been convicted of killing her 4-year-old daughter.
Judge James Kube rendered his verdict Wednesday in Madison County District Court after the bench trial of 23-year-old Carla Montoya. The charge was Intentional Child Abuse Resulting in Death.
Prosecutors say Montoya told police she became angry at her daughter, Caylee, and tossed her into a bed three times on March 12, 2016, and that the girl might have hit her head on the bed frame or a wall. The child died days later in an Omaha hospital.
Montoya is scheduled to be sentenced March 15th.
