After a full day of testimony in a preliminary hearing in Brown County District Court Wednesday, a 28-year-old Hiawatha woman has been bound over for arraignment on charges of murder in the first degree.

Janice Summerford was originally charged with aiding and abetting murder in the second degree and aiding and abetting felony child abuse, along with obstruction, in connection with the March murder of 4-year-old Mekhi Boone.
