A North Carolina woman charged with killing her 4-year-old daughter and burying the girl in her back yard forced the girl's teenage sister help her dispose of the remains, according to a search warrant.
Bennett’s 13-year-old daughter reportedly told police she was forced to help bury the 4-year-old’s body in the back yard.
The 13-year-old reportedly told police Miegellic had soiled herself in her pants, and had been forced to stand in the laundry room of the house as punishment for three days without sitting down, the Observer reports. The teen said Miegellic fell out of the back door and hit her head on the ground, and died after Bennett tried performing CPR.
Bennett allegedly washed the girl’s body and put her into two black plastic trash bags, the teen told police, the Observer reports. The body was then put in the trunk of an SUV for several days before Bennett buried the girl with the teen’s help, the Observer reports.
Miegellic’s body reportedly had serious injuries, including bruises, swelling and black eyes, according to Bennett’s arrest warrant, the Observer reports.
