SPENCER, Ind. (AP) — The visitation and funeral is scheduled Wednesday for an Indiana toddler who was found slain last week after she was reported missing.
Shaylyn Ammerman’s visitation will start at 3 p.m. Wednesday at the Christian Life Center in Spencer. The 1-year-old’s funeral will follow at 7 p.m. A private burial is scheduled at Chambersville Cemetery in Spencer.
Kyle Parker of Spencer faces murder, rape, kidnapping and other charges in the girl’s death. Prosecutors said earlier this week that he drank whiskey with the girl’s uncle and then waited until the family fell asleep before abducting, raping and killing the toddler. Her body was found in a remote, wooded location after two days of searching.
A judge has ordered Parker jailed without bond and entered a not guilty plea for him.
