NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire woman charged with beating her 3-year-old daughter to death has waived a preliminary hearing.

Katlyn Marin of Nashua made her first court appearance last week in the death of Brielle Gage. Prosecutors say the 25-year-old Marin assaulted Brielle several times during Thanksgiving week, and she died shortly after being rushed to a hospital Nov. 25. An autopsy determined she died of blunt-force injuries.

Marin was scheduled for a probable cause hearing on Tuesday, but her lawyer has waived the hearing.

Marin had faced child abuse charges before: She was indicted last year on a charge of striking an 8-year-old boy with a belt, but the case was dismissed because he was too scared to testify against her, according to court papers.
