A Colorado couple will stand trial for murder and abuse in the death of their 4-week-old daughter.
On June 20, 4-week-old Sara Ogden passed away after suffering blunt force trauma to her forehead, which fractured her skull and caused a brain hemorrhage, and a bruised liver.
Her parents, 29-year-old Matthew Ogden and 41-year-old Phyllis Wyatt, fled the area after the girl’s death but were arrested ten days later in Minnesota.
Ogden is charged with first-degree murder of a child, child abuse causing death, two counts of child abuse causing serious bodily injury, and being a fugitive from justice from another state.
Wyatt is charged with criminally negligent child abuse causing death and being a fugitive from justice.
Ogden is being held without bond.
Wyatt is being held on $100,000 bond.
Sara’s twin sibling has been placed in protective custody.
