NEW YORK (AP) - The death of a 2-month-old Bronx girl who was hospitalized with numerous injuries including a fractured spine has been ruled a homicide.

The city’s medical examiner’s office said Wednesday that Sherlin Camacho died of blunt force injury of the head. The girl died on Monday morning after being admitted to Montefiore Hospital in critical condition.

Officers found the girl on Jan. 10 after responding to a 911 call of an infant having difficulty breathing.

Police say she had a broken tibia, a spinal fracture, a bruised femur, a broken rib and retinal damage.

No arrests have been made. The police department’s Bronx Child Abuse Squad is investigating.
