Va. grandmother indicted in girl's death

The Fairfax County woman who allegedly dropped her two-year-old granddaughter to her death from a Tysons Corner walkway has been indicted by a Fairfax grand jury for murder. Carmela Dela Rosa, 50, was with her husband, her son, her daughter and her granddaughter, Angelyn Ogdoc, at the Tysons 1 mall on Nov. 29. Angelyn's mother, Kathlyn Ogdoc, testified in a preliminary hearing last week that the family was walking across a fifth-floor skywalk from the mall to the parking lot around 7:20 p.m. when she looked back to see her mother, Dela Rosa, picking up Angelyn.
