Woman whose 9-year-old daughter was found dead in duffel bag in LA likely to face charges

FOX NEWS - The California woman whose daughter was found dead in a duffel bag this month near a popular hiking trail was extradited from Texas on Thursday, as officials prepare to name her in the girl's homicide case.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, 28-year-old Tequesta Graham was arrested in Texas on March 8 on an unrelated warrant after she was stopped at a border checkpoint. Police said they were unaware of the criminal investigation into the death of her daughter, 9-year-old Trinity Love Jones, at the time of her arrest.

Trinity's body was discovered stuffed in a duffel bag three days earlier along an equestrian trail in Hacienda Heights. The sheriff's department later released a composite sketch of the girl, along with photos of a pink long-sleeve top with the words "Future Princess Hero" and gray pants with pandas on them -- the clothing found on the deceased.

It was determined that Trinity's body had been left at the crime scene in the early afternoon of March 1.
