PORTLAND, Maine - A 10-year-old girl has been charged in central Maine with manslaughter in the death of an infant.
Police announced the charge Thursday, a day after the July death was declared a homicide. Police declined to identify the girl, who is due in juvenile court in October.
Police say a Fairfield baby sitter called police to report the infant was not breathing.
The baby's mother, Nicole "Nicki" Greenaway, of Clinton, says the 10-year-old lived in the sitter's home.
She says authorities told her the baby had ingested medication used for attention-deficit disorder and been suffocated. She also says she saw bruises on her daughter's body.
Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says the 10-year-old suspect is the youngest person in Maine to be charged with manslaughter in at least 25 years.
