WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A baby sitter who left the body of a Wichita toddler in a field has been charged with interfering with a police investigation.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/2ejSZdl ) reports that 26-year-old Tyerria Miles made her first appearance Tuesday morning in Sedgwick County on the felony charge. She doesn’t have a listed phone number.

Investigators said they believe 2-year-old Jhornee Bland died early May 8. Miles was caring for Jhornee in the days before her death. Police have said Miles put the girl’s body in the field and lied to her mother about Jhornee’s whereabouts.

After the Jhornee’s mother reported her missing, Miles disclosed the location of the body on May 9. The coroner who conducted the autopsy was unable to determine what killed her.
