Ocoee police say Amanda Brumfield, the godmother of Olivia Garcia, claimed initially that the baby fell out of a playpen, but that this is suspicious.

An autopsy completed in March concluded that the 28-inch fall could not have caused the skull fracture or bleeding of the brain that Olivia suffered.

The injury led to a coma and the death of the child the following day, October 4.

Prosecutors have not released what they think happened or given a motive.
