        A mother originally from Georgetown is accused of killing her own 22-month-old daughter.

        She's the wife of a man from Lexington serving in the military overseas.

        They live on Dyess Air Force Base in Abeilene, TX.

        Police say Kalpheke called them Tuesday saying her daughter Tamryn was unresponsive.

        According to police, the daughter died at the hospital and was malnourished and dehydrated.

        The preliminary autopsy report says she had burns on her skin from lying in her own waste and she had sunken eyes from malnutrition.
        Klapheke is in jail on $500,000 bond.

        Police say she also has a three-year-old and a six-month-old that were also neglected.

        They're in intensive care, but expected to survive.

        When ABC 36 tried to contact a family member here in Lexington, he said they were told not to talk.
