Idaho woman charged in death of toddler

BOISE - Amanda Jean Dunlap is in the Ada County Jail facing a murder charge. The 22-year-old is also facing eight counts of felony injury to a child and one count of misdemeanor injury to a child.

Boise Police Department spokesperson, Haley Williams, says officers assisted the Twin Falls Police Department in making the arrest in Boise. Dunlap was booked into the Ada County Jail early Saturday morning.

A warrant for Dunlap's arrest was issued Friday, following an investigation that began on October 8 in Twin Falls. On that date, the Twin Falls Police Department responded to a call from St. Luke's Magic Valley about a 20-month-old child in distress.

The child was flown to Boise, and died from the injuries on October 14.

We are working to gather more information about the case.
