Not enough evidence to charge former Rainbow Wahine in daughter’s death, judge says

Puerto Rico (AP) -

 A judge in Puerto Rico has found there is not enough evidence to charge a former U.S. Olympic volleyball player who played at Hawaii in the 2016 death of her young daughter.

Police had accused Kim Willoughby of murder and child abuse in the case. It was not immediately clear if Willoughby, who played collegiate volleyball and basketball at Hawaii, had an attorney.

Police had said in 2016 that Willoughby told them her 3-year-old daughter slipped in the shower and died after hitting her head.

Friday, police presented charges but a judge ruled there was not enough evidence to charge her.

Willoughby played in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and won a silver medal. She later played with a team in Puerto Rico.
