Mother and Roommate Charged With Starving Girl, 3

On the morning of July 1, Beth Williams, 26, brought her 3-year-old daughter to a Joplin, Mo., emergency room. Police say the girl was barely breathing and weighed only 12 pounds — less than half the normal weight for a child that age. According to a probable cause affidavit, the girl had a “blood sugar level of zero,” and a body temperature that was “too low to register.”
