PHOENIX (AP) - A Jan. 12 trial has been set for an Arizona woman charged with murder in the disappearance of her 5-year-old daughter in 2011.

Jerice Hunter pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and child abuse charges in the disappearance of Jhessye Shockley.

Investigators believe Shockley was killed and her body was put in a trash bin days before Hunter reported the girl missing.

Police say Hunter told police that she left Jhessye with the girl's older siblings while she ran an errand and returned to find her gone.

A 96-day search at a landfill in 2012 ended without finding the girl's remains.

In 2005, Hunter was arrested on child abuse charges in California and served about four years in prison after pleading pleaded no contest to corporal punishment.
