Costanza’s boyfriend, Jacob Hughes, was arrested back in July on charges of murder and aggravated child abuse. It is believed he was responsible for Eloise Costanza’s head injuries and bruising.
Police believe Hughes was caring for the Eloise the day she died. He contacted his girlfriend through Facebook to inform Costanza that Eloise was having trouble breathing, according to statement issued Metro Police. Costanza rushed home from work, calling 911 as she neared her Bellevue home. When paramedics arrived they found the child bruised and unresponsive. Hughes blamed the girl’s condition on a fall. An autopsy later concluded Eloise’s death was result of homicide, noted Metro Police.
Police say Costanza knew of Hughes alleged abusive behavior but chose to leave the child in his care.
Costanza was released Friday night after posting $50,000 bond. Hughes has remained in jail since his July arrest.

Faith leaders asked to help members get legal help

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A group in Tennessee is using faith leaders to connect people in need of legal help with attorneys willing to provide free services.
The faith-based initiative of Tennessee's Access to Justice Commission aims to reach people at a place they already go for help: their churches, mosques and synagogues. Faith leaders then put needy members in touch with participating attorneys.
The Legal Services Corp. estimates that fewer than one in ?ve low-income people in the U.S. get the legal assistance they need.
Various programs exist to bridge this gap, but experts say there's nothing quite like the Tennessee initiative. In part, that's because it recognizes that many people who could use an attorney's help won't seek legal aid because they don't see their problem as a legal one.
