ATLANTIC (AP) — More charges have been filed against an Iowa woman accused of lying about her daughter’s cancer diagnosis.

Court records show 30-year-old Leatha Slauson was charged recently with domestic abuse and assault charges in connection to a case involving her 5-year-old daughter. She also faces charges of administering harmful substances.

The charges are in addition to earlier charges of child endangerment causing bodily injury, drug distribution to a minor and unlawful possession of a prescription drug. A message left for her attorney was not immediately returned Wednesday.

Slauson is accused of telling her community that her daughter had terminal cancer. Police say an investigation determined the child is not sick.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports a trial date has been scheduled for Nov. 12 in Cass County District Court.
