TOPEKA, Ind. -

Facing growing criticism and anger, a judge in northeast Indiana has stepped away from a mysterious and controversial case involving the death of a 16-month-old girl. How the toddler died is tragic. But some say what happened after her death is downright shocking, prompting calls for a new investigation.

Photos of Alissa Guernsey show a bright-eyed toddler whose grin stretched from ear to ear.

"She had a big, big smile. She loved just to cuddle up and snuggle right up with you. She was just a little cutie," said her uncle, Tyler Sprunger.

But there are other photographs of Alissa – very disturbing photographs – that raise questions about the young girl's life and her tragic death.

They show a 16-month-old covered with bruises, lying motionless in a hospital emergency room.

"There's not a day that doesn't go by when Alissa doesn't pop into my head," Sprunger said, sitting on his front porch. "She was, in my opinion, tortured to death."

Exactly what happened to the toddler is the subject of an intense controversy that has engulfed a small town in northeast Indiana.

Allegations of murder, corruption and injustice just won't go away following court proceedings that legal experts describe as "highly unusual" and "very surprising."

The allegations have prompted a longtime judge to step down from the case, and yet the controversy still rages
