Victoria A. Dycus, 29, and James Hagen Glenn, 31, were both arraigned Jan. 12 on charges of murder in the first degree over the Nov. 19 death of 4-year-old Skylar Shellstrom.
Dycus pleaded not guilty at her arraignment and Glenn, who waived arraignment, also pleaded not guilty. Each had a pretrial hearing set for July 6 and jury trial set for Sept. 27.
The two are being held at the Stone County Jail, each on $1 million bond.
The child’s death was ruled a homicide by the state medical examiner. The autopsy report listed her cause of death as blunt force trauma. Shellstrom is the daughter of Victoria Dycus.
