NEW ORLEANS -- A 28-year-old woman accused of killing her daughter last month is expected to appear in court Thursday for a hearing.

The incident happened in the 4100 block of Gibson Street.

Originally, the little girl's death was ruled unclassified, but later NOPD homicide detectives accused Michelle Harris of hitting her 23-month-old daughter Zion so hard she died from a lacerated liver.

Harris is charged with second-degree murder.
