A Kountze woman was released from the Hardin County jail on Tuesday after posting $250,000 through Al Reed Bonding on a $1.5 million bond, stemming from a child abuse case in 2011, according to sources in the Hardin County jail.

Amanda Nicole Guidry and her boyfriend Jason Wade Delacerda were arrested after Guidry’s child, Breonna Nichole Loftin, 4, was hospitalized and later died from head trauma.

Loftin died at Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital at 12 a.m. on Aug. 17, and the death was ruled homicide with the report listing cause of death by blunt force trauma to the head.
