LAS VEGAS (AP) — A prosecutor says blood was found in a car borrowed by a woman last seen with a missing 10-year-old girl and later arrested in a razor blade slashing of a co-worker at a Las Vegas Strip casino.

Police investigating the disappearance Jade Morris expect to know Friday whether her body is the one found by a person walking a dog in an undeveloped North Las Vegas housing tract.

Jade was last seen Dec. 21.

Clark County Coroner Michael Murphy says he's awaiting results of DNA testing before saying whether the body is Jade Morris.

Prosecutor Robert Daskas convinced a judge Friday to raise bail to $600,000 for Brenda Stokes Wilson.

Wilson is jailed in the slashing case and is expected to face murder and kidnapping charges in Jade Morris' disappearance.
