MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A former Montgomery, Ala. Woman faces murder charges in the death of a 23-month-old child earlier this year.

Police say 33-year-old Natasha Cottrell was arrested in Florence and charged this week. The Montgomery Advertiser reports that an autopsy report found signs of physical assault and trauma on the boy’s body (https://on.mgmadv.com/1vlZvCA).

Authorities say Cottrell was a friend of the child’s family and that he and his siblings had been staying with her. The child was reported unresponsive on April 16 and taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Cottrell is being held without bond in the Montgomery County Detention Facility. No attorney was listed in jail records.
