MILWAUKEE (AP) - A day care provider is charged with killing a 7-week-old child in Milwaukee.

Thirty-seven-year-old Claudette Mitchell is charged with first-degree reckless homicide in the Aug. 22 death of Savaiyah Reid at Who’s Loving You day care.

A criminal complaint says Mitchell told police she put the baby down for a nap and when she checked on her about an hour later she was unresponsive and had scratches and blood on her face. The Journal Sentinel reports an autopsy showed Savaiyah had suffered a skull fracture with bruising around her face and on her abdomen.

A complaint says Mitchell told investigators none of the eight other children at the day care went into the bedroom where Savaiyah was napping. Mitchell is being held on $75,000 bond. Mitchell’s attorney did not immediately return a call for comment.
