HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A Hartford mother heads to court after being charged with manslaughter in her child’s death.
27-year-old Tamara Lee Santana was already in custody on an unrelated charge. Police were called to the home at Elmer Street after reports a baby was injured back in July.
The child was taken to the hospital but had to be taken off life support four days later. Police say the baby may have drowned in the bathtub.
Santana is also being charged with criminal negligent homicide and reckless endangerment.
