Teen held in slaying of 2-year-old girl
A 2-year-old girl who apparently had been beaten was found dead in a house in Annapolis on Saturday and a teenager has been arrested and charged in the incident, Annapolis police said.
Timothy Darnell Height, 17, was taken into custody Saturday at an Annapolis housing development, police said.
The toddler, Amoir Faith Turner, was found about 7 a.m. Saturday in her bed in a house in the 1900 block of Copeland Street. The site is about two miles west of the downtown area and about a half mile south of Aris T. Allen Boulevard.
Police said an autopsy was performed Sunday, and the death was ruled to be a homicide, caused by multiple blunt trauma. Annapolis Police Chief Michael A. Pristoop told reporters the girl suffered a fractured skull, a broken leg and possible sexual assault, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Pristoop said there was “reason to believe” Height was alone with the child.
Height has been charged in a warrant with murder, assault and reckless endangerment.
