ORANGE CITY, Iowa (AP) - A plea hearing is planned next week for an Orange City day care provider who is charged with killing a 3-year-old girl.

Assistant Iowa Attorney General Coleman McAllister told the Sioux City Journal (https://bit.ly/1C2M6NK ) details on Rochelle Sapp’s plea agreement won’t be made public until her hearing Thursday.

District Judge Edward Jacobson set the hearing after a Friday meeting with attorneys.

The 34-year-old Sapp previously pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and child endangerment in the death of Autumn Elgersma last year. An autopsy report says the girl died of blunt force head injuries.
