A 38-year-old Appleton woman will stand trial on a child neglect charge for the death of her 13-year-old daughter.
Brianna Gussert had disabilities, and she was found dead in her upstairs bedroom in May of last year.
Nicole Gussert waived her right to a preliminary hearing in Outagamie County court Tuesday afternoon.
Prosecutors say the girl had an over-filled diaper, and the mother told them she couldn’t remember the last time she fed the girl or changed her diaper. They say the house in the 800 block of W. Winnebago Street smelled of rotten food and death.
Nicole Gussert is also charged with three counts of dealing meth. She’s scheduled to be back in court next month for an arraignment.
