SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The mother of a 6-year-old California girl whose burned body was found in a remote field has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against a number of public agencies that she says should have safeguarded her child.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/2iXSchb ) that attorneys for the mother of Jadianna Larsen, Tanecia Clark, last week filed a lawsuit claiming Sacramento County, Child Protective Services and the Department of Health and Human Services failed to protect her daughter despite multiple reports of abuse.

Juan Rivera, Clark’s former boyfriend, is accused of sexually assaulting Jadianna then killing her before dumping and burning her body. The body was found May 28, 2015, in rural Glenn County. Rivera’s mother, Lisa Burton, is accused of helping cover up the girl’s death. Both Rivera and Burton were ordered to stand trial at a hearing on Monday.
