WSU Student Charged In Death Of Newborn

KSAL StaffAugust 12, 2015

A 19-year-old Wichita State student faces first-degree murder charges in the death of an infant.

Marissa Carol Fields of Olathe was charged Monday in Johnson County court with first-degree murder and aggravated abandonment of a child in connection with the child’s death in December.

Court documents show Fields is accused of neglecting and abandoning the child at an Olathe home.

Her lawyer, Carl Cornwell, declined comment on the case Wednesday, but said Fields has been released on bond.

Joe Kleinsasser, director of news and media relations at Wichita State, says Fields has been a student at Wichita State since the fall of 2014 and was enrolled for the fall 2015 semester.

She’s scheduled to appear in Johnson County court on Aug. 20.
