MARSHALL, Mo. -- A 32-year-old Sedalia woman faces murder charges in the death of her 18-month-old child.

Lydia M. Iliff was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder, tampering and endangering the welfare of a child, all felonies.

The body was found in July after Iliff turned up alone at Saline County home disoriented and dehydrated and saying she didn't know where her child was. Searchers found the body near the Blackwater River.
