ONONDAGA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

A Michigan woman has been charged in the death of her 16-year-old daughter who couldn't talk or walk and depended solely on her mother.

The Lansing State Journal reports that 43-year-old Cari Ann Wright of Onondaga Township was charged Monday with murder, first-degree child abuse and torture in connection with her daughter's death. She was ordered to be held without bond in the Ingham County Jail.

Ingham County Sheriff's Detective Charles Buckland testified at the hearing that medical examiners determined that Hannah Warner died in November 2015 from "neglect caused my malnutrition." He said the girl weighed only 43 pounds and her death was ruled a homicide.

An attorney who stood in court with Wright at her arraignment declined to comment and said a court-appointed attorney will handle her defense.
