ABILENE, Texas (AP) — A trial date is set for a West Texas woman who claimed her military husband's deployment overseas left her too stressed to care for their three children, including a 22-month-old daughter who died.

The Abilene Reporter-News (http://bit.ly/KfFrvW ) reports that Tiffany Klapheke's trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 27.

Klapheke is charged with injury to a child in the August 2012 death of Tamryn Klapheke, who died of malnutrition and dehydration.

Tiffany Klapheke faces up to life in prison if convicted.

She has said she was too stressed by her military spouse's deployment to care for her three daughters.

Airman Thomas Klapheke divorced his wife. The state has temporary conservatorship with their father granted restrictive custody.
