24-year-old Stacey Barker will be tried for murder, assault of a child causing death, and child abuse.
Sufficient evidence in the death of 18-month-old Emma Barker caused a Lancaster Superior Judge to issue an order for her mother to stand trial.
Barker originally told law enforcement that she was knocked unconscious as she placed little Emma in her car on March 19. She claimed to have awakened in a park-and-ride lot hours later.
Barker then changed her story to say that Emma had died in an accident and she dumped the body along side a road in a panic.
A trial date has not been set.
