Babysitter Accused Of Toddler Drug Death Still Awaiting Trial After Year In Tremplo Jail
One year ago today, a young woman from Osseo was brought to court on a reckless homicide charge...
Amanda Butts was charged with causing the drug-related death of her boyfriend's young daughter in June of 2013. A year after Butts was charged in the death of 22-month-old Alexis Behlke, she is still waiting to be tried for homicide and physical abuse of the child. An autopsy showed that the girl died from a combination of three medicines, after Butts reportedly gave her the drugs to get her to sleep. A week-long trial for Butts has been scheduled for late September in Trempealeau County Court.
