A 23-year-old US daycare has been arrested after she “tortured” an eight-month-old girl during nap time, which led to the infant’s death.
According to CBS Baltimore, Leah Walden faces numerous charges in relation to the incident, including first and second-degree murder.
Baby Reese Bowman died on May 23 after officers were called to the Baltimore childcare centre on reports a baby had stopped breathing.
Medics performed CPR on the eight-month-old, who was pronounced dead after being transferred to a nearby hospital.
When Walden was questioned after the girl’s death, she said she had simply put the baby down for a nap and found her not breathing when she checked on her 45 minutes later.
