AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) - Police in western New York say the death of a 3-year-old girl has been ruled a homicide.

A medical examiner has determined that Mayouna Smith of the Buffalo suburb of Amherst died from blows to her abdominal region.

Police tell local media Friday that the girl also had been physically and sexually abused before her Jan. 18 death. Police say the little girl was home with her mother, the mother’s boyfriend and another child when police received a call that she was unresponsive.

No arrests have been made.
