Vernon, Texas - A five-year-old child is dead Thursday and her mother is now charged with capital murder.
Former Amarillo resident Kristina Earnest is held in the Wilbarger County jail with a $250,000 bond for Kati Earnest's death.
Amarillo Child Protective Services spokesman Greg Cunningham says the 22-year-old has two other children, a boy and a girl.
He says she was investigated in 2006 in Amarillo for physical neglect relating to Kati's hygiene and in 2008 for neglectful supervision of her son.
