CHATTANOOGA, (WRCB) Charges will not be dismissed against a woman in the death of her toddler.

Traci Carpenter's 18-month old daughter, Sierra, died in 2006 from abuse.

Brian Rutherford was acquitted in the murder.

In July, Carpenter's attorneys argued the aggravated child neglect charges should be dropped because of a plea deal with prosecutors.

The judge denied that request from Traci Carpenter's attorneys.

She's goes back to court in September.
