The caretakers of a 3-year-old Wichita girl who was beaten to death last month waived their rights to a preliminary hearing Tuesday and have been bound over for trial on first-degree felony murder charges.

Monica Krueger and Evan A. Schuessler are set for a jury trial Aug. 25 in the death of Krueger’s daughter Emma, according to Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office’s spokesman Dan Dillon. The girl died June 4 after being taken to a local hospital by ambulance two days earlier. Emma was unresponsive, had bruises covering her body and had swelling on her brain.

Both Krueger, 24, and Schuessler, Krueger’s 23-year-old boyfriend, were arrested June 3 in connection with the girl’s injuries. They were charged with murder after she died.
