Jessica Kelley’s defense had filed a motion to dismiss the charge of child abuse resulting in death but then asked to withdraw that motion.

The prosecution responded Wednesday saying this shows the state has enough evidence to prove Kelley’s guilt and want the decision to go to a jury.

Victoria Marten’s mother, Michelle Martens, has taken a plea deal in the case. Another suspect, Fabian Gonzales, is awaiting trial.

Another unidentified suspect in the case has not yet been located by authorities.
