LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The stepmother indicted for the second degree murder of five-year-old Savannah Vincent in 2008 is now behind bars.

As promised, Barbara "Ginny" Vincent reported to the Calcasieu jail this morning. Her last known address had been in Illinois, but deputies said she had been living in Texas.

The sheriff said they talked to her attorney who said she would turn herself in today.

Savannah died of brain injury in 2008. Her father William Stewart Vincent was also indicted and reported to jail, but he has bonded out.

Bond was set at $150-thousand dollars for each. At last word Ginny Vincent was still in jail.
