MACON, Ga. (AP) - A Macon woman accused of murder and child cruelty in the death of her 4-month-old malnourished infant daughter has been denied bond.

The Macon Telegraph (https://bit.ly/1SV0pvM ) reports that a judge on Thursday denied an attorney’s request for bond for 25-year-old Kawanna Janesa Oliver, who has denied the allegations against her.

Deputies say they spent nearly two years investigating the April 2014 death of Andrea Oliver before issuing an arrest warrant for her mother earlier this month.

Prosecutor Larissa Ollivierre says the baby’s cause of death was ruled to be malnourishment and dehydration.

An autopsy later showed that the infant weighed just 5 pounds at her death, 2 pounds fewer than she had when she was born.

Oliver’s case is set to be presented to a grand jury next month.
