Baby-sitter charged in infant's death remains behind bars after judge didn't rule on bond


BOILING SPRINGS, South Carolina — A Boiling Springs woman charged with killing a 3-month-old girl will remain behind bars after a judge didn't rule on bond.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reported (http://bit.ly/1FLftIN ) the judge didn't rule on bond for 32-year-old Katie Wheeler Harris by 5 p.m. Friday. Authorities say that means she'll remain behind bars at least through the weekend.

Harris is charged with homicide by child abuse in the death of Everly Grey Dickard, who died March 30 after being hospitalized with a head injury, bleeding on the brain and a head fracture.

Authorities say the infant suffered the injuries March 20 while Harris was babysitting.

Defense attorney Steven Denton says there's no evidence that Harris is a flight risk and that she poses no danger to the community.
