Lawyers for a Willard babysitter charged with killing 9-month old Lucas Payton Theede-Bennett have waived her preliminary hearing, and she was bound over for trial today.

53 year-old Brenda J. Caringer was babysitting the little boy in January when he fell unconscious.

Caringer was charged with second degree murder and child abuse resulting in death last month for little Lucas' death.

Prosecutors say that the little boy died of, "abusive head injuries," that are consistent with a crushed skull, and signs of bleeding on the brain.

Earlier this month (03-13-09,) and again today, Caringer's lawyers filed a motion with the court asking that her $250,000 bond be reduced Friday.

Those motions were denied and Caringer remains in the Greene County Jail.

Caringer is scheduled to be formally arraigned on in circuit court on April 10th.

On March 16th Lucas' mother, Amanda Theede, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Caringer for her little boys death.

A hearing is scheduled for April 7th because Lucas' father, Sean Bennett, wants to join in the wrongful death lawsuit against Caringer.
