FORT WASHINGTON, Md. (WMAR) - Prince George's County Police have charged a 12-year-old boy last night with the second degree murder of his 2-year-old foster sister.
The victim lived with the boy in the 1800 block of Taylor Avenue in Fort Washington. On Tuesday, police were called to the home after the toddler's father called 911 to report the girl unresponsive.
The father performed CPR on the toddler until paramedics arrived and took her to a local hospital where she was pronounced deceased.
An autopsy confirmed that the girl died of blunt force trauma.
The investigation revealed that the 12-year-old had beaten the child repeatedly.
The boy is now being held at the Cheltenham Youth Facility facing second degree murder charges.
