BILLINGS, Mont. — A woman on a Montana American Indian Reservation will be charged with murder in the alleged beating death of a 13-month-old girl who was under her care, a tribal prosecutor said Tuesday.
Janelle Red Dog, 42, is accused of killing Kenzley Olson and putting her body in a dumpster before reporting the girl missing April 19.
That triggered an Amber alert for Kenzley in Montana and North Dakota. Authorities canceled the alert after Red Dog purportedly confessed and drew map that led them to the baby’s body.
