WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- - Kathleen Dymes, a Croton-on-Hudson resident, who has been charged in the death of her 6-year-old daughter, Lacey Carr, failed to appear in court again on Thursday and was ordered to show up next Tuesday.

Dymes is expected to appear in court Tuesday and accept a plea bargain, according to LoHud . Dymes has been hospitalized at NewYork Presbyterian Hospital in White Plains and missed court Tuesday as well.

On Thursday, Dymes' psychiatrist, Dr. Sandra Lane, said Dymes was being treated for major depression and could be released in the next several weeks, according to LoHud.

Dymes' lawyer, Peter Tilmen, said she would appear in court Tuesday.

Dymes was charged in September with criminally negligent homicide, endangering the welfare of a child and criminal possession of a controlled substance. Dymes faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

Dymes and Lacey were found by Lacey's father, David Carr on April 5. Dymes and Lacey lived at the home with Dymes' father, Kevin.
