A woman described as mentally ill was charged with murder for allegedly jumping into a river with her granddaughter in an apparent murder-suicide attempt, authorities said.

The toddler remained missing and divers kept up efforts to find the body of 19-month-old Acacia Patience Bishop in the murky and frigid waters of the Snake River.

Kelley Jean Lodmell, 38, described by authorities as a paranoid schizophrenic, made her initial court appearance from the county jail in Idaho Falls by closed-circuit television.
