ROCKDALE, Texas -- A Milam County grand jury indicted a Rockdale woman Thursday for capital murder accused of killing her foster child.

Alex Hill's biological parents took her off life support two weeks ago. The two-year-old's foster mother, Sherill Small, admitted to fatally throwing her to the ground.

Thursday morning, the district attorney's office presented the case to a grand jury.

The upgraded capital murder charge can carry the death penalty.
