The 33-year-old pled not guilty to first-degree murder and child endangerment, resulting in death.

Authorities say test results confirmed the girl died of blunt force trauma.

According to court documents, Sapp was taking care of the girl at her home, when the girl refused to take off her coat, Sapp then threw her to the floor.

Sapp’s attorney also requested to have her $250,000 bond reduced. A judge however, denied that request.
