LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Bond has been denied for a Lexington woman who was charged in connection to the death of her 4-year-old daughter.

Lexington County EMS responded to the home later that evening and found the child unresponsive. She was pronounced dead later that night.

Estrada-Lopez is being held at the Lexington County Detention Center.

The investigation into the child’s death is still ongoing.
