A Prairie City woman charged in a deadly dog attack had her preliminary hearing Monday and bonded out of jail.

Jena Wright is facing four charges including child endangerment resulting in death and neglect or abandonment.

Police say Wright was babysitting four-year-old Jordyn Arndt on April 15th, when Wright’s American Staffordshire terrier mauled Jordyn.

The little girl died from her injuries the next day.

Wright was in court Monday morning for a preliminary hearing where her arraignment was set for May 6th. She had also asked for her bond to be reduced but a judge denied that. Wright posted a $50,000 surety bond and was released from the Jasper County Jail.
