HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (Times Free Press) -

A criminal court judge set Feb. 4, 2014, as the trial date for a local mother charged in connection with her daughter's 2006 death.

Traci Carpenter, 26, faces a trial on aggravated child neglect in connection with her 18-month-old daughter Sierra Carpenter's death that year.
