10-year-old Maine girl charged with manslaughter in death of infant
Ten-years-old – and after some investigation? That’s as unusual, as it is troubling.
“We’re not discussing her role or getting into any more details on her identity, although we feel she is responsible for the baby’s death,” said McCausland. “Manslaughter was the appropriate charge.”
Three-month-old Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway of Clinton died on July 8 while under the care of a baby sitter in Fairfield. State police declared the death a homicide Wednesday.
“The decision on charging the girl was made after consulting with the attorney general’s office,” said McCausland, who declined to give any additional details about the death. “The state medical examiner’s office continues to work on the case.”
