KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Authorities have charged two people in the death of a 4-year-old Kansas girl.
The Kansas City, Kansas, police department said in a release that 28-year-old Devondre Sanders and 23-year-old Sierra Mitchell are charged with first-degree murder in the death of Honesty Sanders, who was found unconscious in a Kansas City, Kansas, apartment on May 27. She died about a week later at a hospital.
Her death was recently ruled a homicide.
Police say the two defendants turned themselves in at the Wyandotte County Detention Center. The Kansas City Star reports Mitchell was booked into jail late Tuesday night, and Sanders was booked early Wednesday.
It’s unclear if either Sanders or Mitchell has a lawyer. They’re being held on $500,000 bond.
