LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge in Las Vegas refused to reduce the $1 million bail set for a 44-year-old woman accused of intentionally drowning her 2-year-old daughter in a bathtub last weekend.

Linette Fay Boedicker remained Friday at the Clark County jail pending May 28 preliminary hearing of evidence on the murder charge against her.

Boedicker also uses the name Warrichaiet.

Her court-appointed lawyer, Sarah Hawkins, has said she’ll challenge police accounts saying Boedicker admitted to officers May 11 that she held her daughter, Kiersten Linette Boedicker, underwater until she stopped breathing.

Police say Boedicker’s husband was at work and officers found the child still in the water.

Officers had been summoned to the apartment several hours earlier on a domestic disturbance call but left after determining no crime had been committed.
