Trial set for mom accused of killing girl with medication

A December trial has been scheduled for a southwestern Iowa mother accused of giving her 8-year-old daughter fatal amounts of an antidepressant drug.

Mills County court records say 34-year-old Misty Frazier, has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder, child endangerment and giving prescription drugs to a minor without a prescription. The trial is set to begin Dec. 12 for the Glenwood resident.

Prosecutors say an autopsy showed the girl died of an overdose of the antidepressant amitriptyline, commonly sold under the brand name Elavil.
