Mother arraigned in connection with her baby's death

Syracuse Police say 19-year-old Wanda Trumble caused significant head injuries to her child, which resulted in the infant's death.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Syracuse Police say 19-year-old Wanda Trumble was arraigned on Sunday morning in connection with her baby's death.

Investigators say the child's father brought her to the hospital on Friday night, where staff contacted police around 8:37 p.m.

At the hospital, detectives learned that the victim, 5-month-old Nataliah Trumble had significant head injuries and was listed in critical condition.
She was pronounced dead Saturday afternoon as a result of those injuries.

Police spent several hours searching through an apartment on 477 James Street on Saturday morning.

Through the investigation and interviews, police determined that Nataliah's mother, 19-year-old Wanda Trumble was responsible for harming her daughter.

Before her child died, Trumble was arrested for Reckless Assault Of A Child (a Class D Felony) and Endangering The Welfare Of A Child (a Class A Misdemeanor). 

Since Nataliah did not survive, police are now calling the case a homicide. A grand jury can decide if Trumble should face more serious charges. She was taken to the Onondaga County Justice Center after her arrest. Police did not have information regarding bail.

Trumble is the mother of two other children. Both are older than Nataliah and are in the custody of family members.

Child Protective Services are helping police with the investigation.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the Syracuse Police Criminal Investigations Division at 315-442-5222.
