A May trial date has been scheduled for a St. Elmo woman charged with endangering the life or health of her child.

24-year-old Heaven Davis was arrested on the felony count January 31, following the death of her one-year-old daughter, Addison Scott of St. Elmo at their residence.  Davis is accused of leaving Addison unattended with a person under age 14 and out of her sight.

At a Thursday hearing, probable cause was found to hold Davis over for trial.  She is due to be tried beginning May 27, with a pre-trial hearing set for March 26.

Davis is free on $35,000 bond.  The amount was reduced from $100,000 at an earlier court hearing.
