24-year-old Stacey Marie Barker from California has finally been ordered to stand trial in the murder of her 18-month-old daughter, Emma Leigh Barker. Back in March Stacey Barker smothered her daughter and then dumped the body along the side of the freeway. She then called the police with a cock-and-bull story about being kidnapped and raped. Later she told the police the truth and she ended up being arrested about a month after her daughter was killed.

A Lancaster Superior Court judge found that there was sufficient evidence to try Barker, who will stand trial for Murder, Assault on a Child Causing Death and Child Abuse. No trial date has yet been set.
