Sinking Springs , Calhoun County , West Virginia
A Calhoun County woman who was indicted for the death of her infant daughter earlier this year will have to wait a little longer to learn her fate.
Ashley Kreh, 21, appeared in a Calhoun County courtroom Monday morning for sentencing, but the judge ordered a 60-day evaluation instead. Earlier this year, she was charged with murder and child abuse resulting in the death of her 2-month-old girl.
Autopsy results showed the infant died of blunt force trauma to the head in February 2012. She was taken to an area hospital where it was determined she had sustained a skull fracture and a broken arm. The infant died a couple of days later.
On Monday, Kreh told the judge that she was sorry, but did not give specifics on what led to the death of her infant daughter.
If convicted, Kreh could face between 10 and 40 years in prison. Prosecutors are asking for her to receive a 40-year sentence.
Ordie Rogers, 30, the father of the baby, faces child neglect charges. His trial is expected to begin in March.
