LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. --
Gwinnett County police have charged a 22-year-old woman with murder and cruelty to children in connection with her infant's death.
Police said Friday Erica LaShae Graham of Sugar Hill faces the charges in the death of her 3-month-old daughter. Police answered a call Jan. 6 and found the child dead.
The woman told police she had put the child in a play pen and that the child was not breathing when she checked on her.
Police spokeswoman Corp. Illana Spellman says an autopsy conducted the next day found injuries that were not consistent with the mother's statement. The autopsy determined the cause of death was head trauma.
