Trial set for mom accused of killing girl with medication

GLENWOOD — A southwestern Iowa mother accused of giving her 8-year-old daughter fatal amounts of an antidepressant drug is set to stand trial in December.

Mills County court records say 34-year-old Misty Frazier, has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder, child endangerment and giving prescription drugs to a minor without a prescription. The trial is set to begin Dec. 12. Prosecutors say an autopsy shows the girl died in October of an overdose of the antidepressant amitriptyline.
