Bond has been set for a Columbus woman accused of killing her 18-month-old daughter, Alexis Long.

Earlier this month, Jennifer Long, 35, was charged with murder.  The Muscogee County Jail says Long's bond has been set at $125,000. She is currently behind bars.

A police report says there were multiple bruises on baby Alexis Long. She appeared to be suffering from head trauma and tissue swelling to the back of the head. When her condition did not improve at the Medical Center she was rushed to Egleston Children's Hospital in Atlanta where she died.

Alexis was recently adopted by Jennifer Long and her husband Timothy. Timothy Long was charged with cruelty to children.

Detective Patrick Knight, of the Columbus Police Department, said Long told police his wife threw Baby Alexis on the changing table.
