MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

One of the two Morgan County women who face charges in the death of a 3-year-old appeared in court for a pretrial hearing Tuesday.

Investigators charged Casey Travis with murder. In 2009, authorities said her 3-year-old son died after ingesting a drug used to treat opiate addicts. Travis pleaded not guilty in 2011.

Travis's sister Rheanna Van Antwerp was charged with criminally negligent homicide. Authorities said she was at her sister's house when the child died.

Travis' trial will go on as scheduled June 16.
