Orange City, IA (AP) – A northwest Iowa day care provider charged with murder has been released from jail after posting bond.
Rochelle Sapp of Orange City walked out of the Sioux County jail Thursday after a judge allowed her to post 10 percent of her $250,000 bond.
Sapp pleaded not guilty Thursday to first-degree murder and child endangerment in the death of Autumn Elgersma.
Investigators say Sapp threw Autumn to the floor after becoming angry with her while watching her on October 29th. They say Sapp falsely told Autumn’s mother that the child was injured after falling down a flight of stairs.
An autopsy ruled that the girl died of blunt force head injury.
