A woman charged in the 2008 death of a 3-year-old Lakewood girl has returned to Pierce County to face trial.
Leanne Bechtel had been in custody in Oregon. She was booked into Pierce County Jail on second-degree murder charges Monday afternoon, according to the online jail roster.
She’s expected to make her first court appearance this afternoon.
Prosecutors filed charges against Bechtel last week in Autumn Franks’ death.
