Former Grand Forks woman charged in daughter's death

Ex-GF woman charged: A prosecutor said the daughter of a former Grand Forks woman who is now a Bismarck college student, and charged with child abuse and neglect, has died.

Burleigh County State's Attorney Richard Riha said the 6-month-old child died Wednesday morning. He said no decision has been made on any additional or new charges against the mother.

Stevie Buckley, 18, was charged with felony child abuse and neglect Tuesday, after bringing her daughter to a hospital emergency room the night before. Sheriff's Lt. Nick Sevart said the baby was dehydrated and appeared undernourished.

Buckley also faces misdemeanor drug charges. Her bail was set at $3,000. She told a judge that she has lived in Bismarck about a month, after moving from Grand Forks.
