Woman Charged in Connection With Child's Death to Appear in Court

Posted: Updated:

A Reno woman accused of child abuse in connection with the death of her husband’s five-year-old daughter is scheduled to appear in court Thursday for a bail hearing.

Reno Police arrested 23-year-old Averyauna Anderson last month after the child died in an apartment complex. 

Investigators say the duo hid the child’s body in a storage unit in Sacramento. Police there arrested her husband, 23-year-old Tyler Anderson who is accused of manslaughter. He was extradited to Reno where he's being held at the Washoe County Jail on $50,000 bond.

According to our CBS affiliate in Sacramento, KOVR, in an affidavit filed by Reno Police, revealed the little girl had been living in deplorable conditions.

Detectives say they found a wire animal crate with handcuffs, in one of the bathrooms inside the home with Cali's belongings and old food on the floor.

When the parents found her unresponsive on the night of May 4th, Anderson's wife told detectives she attempted CPR on Cali with Anderson's help for several hours.

Reno Police say she was kept there in a duffel bag before they drove her body to a storage unit in Sacramento.

The cause of death is pending autopsy results, although investigators determined the child had been severely neglected before her death.

Cali's cousin has set up a GoFundMe to raise money for a funeral. If you'd like to donate, click here.

    A recent study shows the rate of Americans who smoke has fallen to about 14 percent, nationally.  In Washoe County, that number sits at about 10 percent of adults. While those numbers are an improvement, the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health is looking to lower them, even more. The Nevada Tobacco Quitline is a free and convenient way to help smokers who want to quit--do just that.
