HICKORY, NC (AP) -- Lawyers for the stepmother of a disabled North Carolina girl says in court documents that the girl was dismembered. The court documents ask for a reduction in bail for Elisa Baker, saying she helped investigators by leading them to the remains of 10-year-old Zahra Baker.

Elisa Baker has been jailed since last month, accused of trying to throw off investigators by writing a fake ransom note for another child. The court documents filed by lawyers Lisa Dubs and Scott Reilly also say she led police to other evidence.

On Friday, police said they believed they had found Zahra's remains but they have not said how she was killed.
