KOSCIUSKO, Miss. (AP) - Attala County authorities say the mother of a 1-year-old girl has been charged in connection with the child’s death.

The mother, 27-year-old Tami Mann, had been taken into custody on Tuesday.

Now, Attala Sheriff Tim Nail says Tami Mann has been charged with capital murder in the death of her daughter, Jasmine Irwin.

Jasmine died Sunday at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

She had been taken Friday to Attala Baptist Hospital with severe head injuries, before being transferred to the hospital in Jackson.

Nail said an autopsy revealed that Jasmine died of blunt-force trauma.
