BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -
The charge has been reduced from first-degree murder to second-degree murder against Catherine Lowe, a Bossier Parish woman who was arrested earlier this year in connection with the beating death of her 5-year-old step-daughter.
Lowe, of Elm Grove, pleaded not guilty to the charge Tuesday.
The Bossier Parish kindergartner died January 13 of internal bleeding caused by severe trauma. Prosecutors say she suffered those injuries at the hands of her stepmother the day before, and that Catherine Lowe failed to seek medical help for the child until the following morning. By the time Lowe got the little girl to the emergency room at Willis Knighton Pierremont, it was too late. Investigators believe an immediate trip to the hospital could have saved her life.
The reduction in the charge means Catherine Lowe would not face a possible death sentence if convicted. Second-degree murder carries a mandatory life sentence.
The child's father, 32-year-old Wesley Lowe, is charged with negligent homicide. Prosecutors say he failed to get help for his daughter when he saw that she was injured.
