The retrial for an Ottumwa woman accused of killing her 5-year-old daughter begins Tuesday (10/13) in Ottumwa. Kelsie Thomas is accused of killing her daughter, Cloe Chandler, in July 2018. Earlier this year, a Wapello County jury cleared Thomas of child endangerment causing death. But that same jury couldn’t agree on a first degree murder charge. For the retrial, Thomas has waived her right to have a jury hear the case. Instead, Judge Lucy Gamon will decide if Thomas is guilty or not.
