Roseville mom arrested in toddler's death released from custody

By Ed Fletcher

Denise Marie Wilder, the 37-year-old Roseville woman arrested last week on suspicion of killing her 2-year-old daughter, was released from jail on her own recognizance Monday.

The Placer County District Attorney's Office has not yet filed charges in the case. In a prepared statement, District Attorney R. Scott Owens said it's necessary to have a final report from the coroner before a final decision to file charges are made.

Wilder's attorney, Jess Bedore, said prosecutors have no case against his client. "The DA has no evidence, that is why she is leaving (the jail)," he said. "There are too many unknowns. The police made a call that day. I don't know that it was the right call. This tells you that there is no case."

In a court hearing Monday, prosecutors did not oppose Wilder's release. Her next court date has been set for May 8.
