Stepmom indicted in Zahra's death

READ MORE:

HICKORY, NC (AP) -- The stepmother of a disabled North Carolina girl has been indicted on a murder charge in the child's death.

A grand jury in Catawba County handed down the indictment Monday morning, charging Elisa Baker with second-degree murder. Authorities planned to discuss the case at a news conference later in the day.

Elisa Baker had previously been charged with obstructing justice in the investigation of Zahra Baker's death. The 10-year-old was reported missing in October, and police later found her remains.

A search warrant unsealed last month said that Elisa Baker led police to the places where they found Zahra's remains. She claimed that her husband, Adam Baker, dismembered the body. Adam Baker has denied that.

Attorneys for Elisa Baker did not return calls seeking comment Monday.
