PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - Prosecutors will seek the death penalty for the Jupiter woman charged with killing a two-year-old girl.

Forty-year-old Kimberly Lucas is accused of killing her former partner's daughter Elliana Lucas-Jamason and attempting to kill the girl's brother.

Friday morning a judge reviewed the status of the case at the Palm Beach County Courthouse.

Newly-released documents are shedding more light into the moments after Elliana was killed.

According to the report, Lucas was driven around for several hours and questioned by Jupiter police.

Police say she told them she didn't remember what happened.

Investigators say the two-year-old was found dead in the bathtub. An alleged suicide note police say Lucas left at the scene referred to  a church sermon she had heard.

Lucas has another court hearing November 18th.
