Bakersfield mom charged in thirteen-month-old daughter's death

Amanda Reese due in court next week

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The mother of a toddler who died back in January has been charged in the little girl's death.

Amanda Reese is due in court next week on charges of willful cruelty to a child.

The charges stem from the death of her thirteen-month-old, Sophia Lynn.

Reese's boyfriend, Jared Ramirez, is already in jail, charged with second-degree murder in the child's death.

The child was in his care when she was found unresponsive and rushed to the hospital where she later died.

At the time Reese was arrested, but then she was released.

An autopsy showed the little girl died from blunt force trauma.
