KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - The mother of a 4-year-old girl killed in Kansas City, Kansas, questions the months it took authorities to rule the child’s death a homicide.

The child, Honesty Sanders, died in June and was the apparent victim of child abuse.

Kansas City, Kansas, officers were called May 27 and found Honesty unconscious on the floor of an apartment. She was taken to a hospital, where she died about a week later.

Her death was recently ruled a homicide. No charges have been announced.

The child’s mother, Maya Price, told The Kansas City Star (https://j.mp/2g2ssiK) she wants to know why it took months for the homicide determination and is hopeful her daughter’s killer will be brought to justice.

“As soon as it happened, the doctor told me it wasn’t an accident,” Price said Wednesday.

Police said they were awaiting the final autopsy report.

Price said Honesty had been living with relatives of her father for several months and she wasn’t able to see her daughter.

“I didn’t get to see her for seven months,” Price said Wednesday.
