Texas girl suspected of drowning a baby charged

One count of capital murder was filed against a Texas teenager after authorities suspected her of drowning a baby at an apartment, an article from Reuters reported on January 26.

Reports said police identified the suspect as a 14-year-old girl from Dallas. Police reportedly found the body of a 2-month-old baby girl at an apartment establishment after an emergency call. According to investigators, the infant was not related to the teen but was being cared for by the teen’s mother while the baby’s mother was in prison. Another female teenager was present at the scene, and police plan to treat her like a witness. The arrested suspect did not have an attorney, reports also said. Authorities did not reveal any names, nor did they disclose potential motives.
