BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) - A Bloomington woman who was convicted of child endangerment in the beating death of her 3-year-old son will have a trial in October to determine the custody of a daughter born just months before she was imprisoned.

An Oct. 25 trial is scheduled on the state’s request to terminate the custody rights of Danielle Bagley, formerly Danielle Fischer, and husband Kam Bagley. The daughter will soon be a year old and has been in a foster home since birth. The couple was in McLean County Circuit Court on Tuesday for a hearing related to the state’s request, The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reported (https://bit.ly/2bfdELM ).

Danielle Bagley, 25, started serving an 8-year sentence in April in the Logan Correctional Center. She is projected for parole in April 2020 with an April 2021 release date.

The mother pleaded guilty in December to child endangerment in connection with the 2013 death of her 3-year-old son, Robbie Cramer. The boy died after multiple beatings by her then-boyfriend, Nicholas Compton, who is serving life in prison for murder in the toddler’s death. Bagley was accused of failing to seek medical care for her son and putting him in danger by leaving him with Compton.

Prosecutors on Tuesday said Danielle Bagley didn’t complete counseling before she was incarcerated.

Prosecutors also said Kam Bagley missed numerous required counseling sessions between May and July, but his attorney said he has resumed counseling and has been allowed to visit his daughter.

A judge ruled in February that Danielle Bagley was not fit to care for her daughter based on her behavior with her deceased son.
