Nonjury trial set for woman accused of killing daughter

MADISON, Neb. (AP) _ A trial has been scheduled for a Norfolk woman accused of killing her 4-year-old daughter.

Court records say the trial of 22-year-old Carla Montoya is set to begin Nov. 1.

On Monday she waived her right to a jury trial, so a district judge in Madison County will hear the evidence and render a verdict.

Montoya has pleaded not guilty to intentional child abuse resulting in death.

Prosecutors say Montoya told police she had tossed her 4-year-old daughter, Caylee, into a bed three times on March 12 and that the girl may have hit her head on the bed frame or a wall.
