KOMO-TV reported that the Lewis County prosecutor said Becky Heupel failed to protect Koralyn Fister from abuse. She died last May from a blow to the head and drowning in a bathtub.
Heupel's boyfriend, James Reeder, admitted there was evidence to convict him of rape and murder charges and was sentenced in March to 37 years in prison.
