Homicide

Mother to appear on charge of killing 2-year-old daughter at Oregon coastal resort

A woman accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter at an Oregon coastal inn goes to court Monday.

Authorities arrested 40-year-old Jessica Smith of Goldendale, Washington, on Sunday in the woods east of Cannon Beach. She's accused of aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder.

On Friday, a housekeeper found Smith's 2-year-old daughter dead in a room at a Cannon Beach resort. Authorities said Smith's 13-year-old daughter was badly cut, but is expected to recover.

Clatsop County District Attorney Josh Marquis (mahr-kee) says Smith's arraignment is scheduled for Monday afternoon. He says she'll appear by a video feed from jail and is not expected to enter a plea.

He says a defense lawyer may be appointed, and the county grand jury is expected to hear the case this week.
