Police release photos of Jhessye Shockley's apartment

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- For the first time, we're getting a look inside the apartment where Jhessye Shockley lived. She's the five year old girl who disappeared more than a year ago.

Jhessye's mom, Jerice Hunter, was arrested in September and charged in her daughter's death. She pleaded not guilty to murder and child abuse.

Police now believe the little girl's body is in the Butterfield landfill.

Jhessye lived in the Glendale apartment with her mother and two siblings, until she vanished last October.

Investigators who searched the apartment say they found blood on a rag,  cotton ball, pillowcase, wall, and on the outside patio.

Police have also released photos of the Tempe dumpster where detectives believe Jhessye's mother dumped her body before she reported the child missing.
