PONTIAC, Ill. (AP) - Jury selection was to continue Wednesday in the trial of an Illinois woman accused in the 2011 death of a 4-year-old Bloomington foster child.

Eight jurors were chosen by Tuesday in the trial of Heather Lamie, 31, now of Kankakee, The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reported (https://bit.ly/1mskZK2 ). Lamie is charged with two counts of murder and one count of endangering the life or health of a child in the death of Kianna Rudesill.

The girl was a foster child in Lamie’s Cullom home when she was taken to a Pontiac hospital for seizure-like symptoms. A Peoria County coroner’s jury ruled the girl’s death a homicide. Authorities cited her cause of death as subdural hematoma, cerebral injuries and blunt trauma of the head.
