OGDEN, Utah (AP) - A lawyer for a Utah woman accused of trying to conceal her slain toddler’s injuries with makeup says the girl’s parents want permission to attend her funeral.

The Standard-Examiner in Ogden reports (https://bit.ly/2uo69hg) attorney Susanne Gustin said Thursday she expects to request a furlough from jail for 22-year-old Brenda Emile after authorities release the girl’s body.

Judge Michael DiReda says he’d be unlikely to allow it, given the allegations against Emile and her husband, 25-year-old Miller Costello.

They are both charged with aggravated murder in the death of 3-year-old Angelina Costello.

The couple is accused of recording cellphone videos of themselves taunting the malnourished girl with food as her condition worsened over the last year and a half.

She was found dead on July 6, covered with burns, bruises and cuts.
