A woman accused of murder in her 2-month-old daughter’s death for allegedly not seeking medical help when the child was throwing up and sleeping constantly will be tried with the baby’s father, who’s also charged in the case.

Jessica Adkins, 21, appeared in court Friday with her attorneys, Jim Bowman and Donna Bolton, for a bond-reduction hearing.

Adkins and Russell Long, 25, are both charged with first-degree felony murder in the March 6 death of their child, 2-month-old Kaylie Adkins.
