Hearing scheduled in child-abuse homicide case

A preliminary hearing is scheduled to be held Wednesday in Butler County District Court for an El Dorado woman who is charged with killing her 18-month-old daughter.

Alyssa Haag, 23, was charged last month with first-degree murder in the death of Jayla Haag, who died at a Wichita hospital of injuries that prosecutors said were consistent with child abuse. Prosecutors said Haag’s boyfriend, Justin Edwards, is also charged in the case and is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing Wednesday on the same charge.
