TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The state of Kansas will pay $75,000 to settle a lawsuit alleging that the Department of Children and Families failed to intervene to protect an 18-month-old girl who eventually died.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Jayla Haag died in 2012 from blunt-force head injuries.

The suit accused the agency of ignoring warning signs that included calls to a child-abuse hotline.
