GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (AP) — Police in the Cayman Islands have charged a woman with fatally stabbing her 6-year-old daughter.

Authorities had arrested 37-year-old Tamara Butler in late October after finding the girl wrapped in a blanket inside the woman’s car. Butler’s husband is a sergeant with the Cayman Island’s police department.

Butler appeared in court Friday and is scheduled to have a psychiatric examination before appearing in court again on Nov. 28.

More than 1,000 people attended Bethany Butler’s funeral earlier this week, including the island’s premier.
