KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - A southwestern Michigan mother accused of murder, child abuse and torture in the death of her daughter on the girl’s fourth birthday has been ordered to trial.

A Kalamazoo judge ruled Wednesday there was enough evidence to bind over 25-year-old Daveeta Walker in the March death of Kharisma Richardson.

The Associated Press left a message Thursday seeking comment from lawyer Ronald Pichlik, who is listed as representing Walker.

Officers responding to a 911 call at a Kalamazoo apartment on March 26 found the girl unresponsive and not breathing. An autopsy showed she had blunt force trauma injuries and burns with blisters on her feet.

The night officers arrived at Walker’s home, they found three other children in a bedroom watching a pornographic movie. They were removed from Walker’s custody.
