Doctors at Children’s Hospital Colorado who treated 7-year-old Olivia Gant before she died in 2017 must provide additional information to attorneys ahead of the murder trial for Olivia’s mother, Kelly Turner, an 18th Judicial District Court judge ruled Tuesday.

Doctors and others who are expected to give expert testimony during the murder trial must provide written summaries that explain their observations of Olivia, treatment decisions and diagnoses, District Court Judge Patricia Herron decided, reiterating an order she’d already made because the initial information provided by doctors was not sufficient.

Turner is charged with first-degree murder in Olivia’s death. She is accused of pretending Olivia was sick and manipulating doctors at Children’s Hospital Colorado into performing unnecessary medical procedures for years, until Olivia was discharged to hospice and died.

A Denver Post investigation this spring revealed that some doctors and nurses at the hospital suspected Olivia was being medically abused by her mother before the girl died, but the hospital did not report those concerns to the state’s Department of Human Services, despite Colorado’s mandated reporting laws.
