WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A woman arrested in connection to the death of 2-year-old girl, whose body was found in a Wichita field, has been released from jail after a preliminary autopsy was unable to determine how the child died.

Wichita Deputy Police Chief Hassan Ramzah said that 25-year-old Tyerria Miles was released Thursday as the investigation continues. She had been arrested on suspicion of aggravated endangering of a child and possession of stolen property.

Ramzah said that Jhornee Bland had been in the care of Miles since May 4. Jhornee’s mother told 911 Sunday night that she couldn’t locate her child after she says she contacted Miles to check on her daughter.

Police say Miles told Jhornee’s mother that she had taken the girl to the apartment of an acquaintance of Jhornee’s mother. Police found the apartment vacant.

Jhornee’s body was found Monday.
