PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A Washington state woman going through a divorce and custody battle is accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter and severely cutting her teenage daughter at a popular inn on the northern Oregon coast, a crime that has shocked tourists and residents.

 

Jessica Smith, 40, was in custody Monday on murder and other charges.

Authorities began looking for her Friday after a housekeeper at the Surfsand Resort in Cannon Beach found the body of Smith’s 2-year-old daughter in a room. The other daughter, age 13, was badly cut and taken to a Portland hospital for surgery, police said. She’s expected to recover.

On Sunday, a Coast Guard helicopter spotted an SUV driven by Smith in the woods east of Cannon Beach, and authorities soon took her into custody.
