Trial date set for mother charged in daughter's death

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton woman, charged in the death of her daughter, appeared in Comanche County court Tuesday morning.

Kayla Sawyer and her husband, Alexander Sawyer, are both charged with second-degree manslaughter in the death of their daughter. Investigators say four people were in a bed with the baby in September 2014 when the girl rolled off the mattress and became wedged between the bed and a wall.

The parents were in another bed.

Sawyer's trial date is set for January. Alexander Sawyer is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on August 20.
