SKOWHEGAN, Maine - A 10-year-old girl charged in the death of an infant in Maine is due in court.
The youngster is scheduled for her initial court appearance Monday in District Court in Skowhegan on a juvenile manslaughter charge.
The girl is charged in the July 8 death of 3-month-old Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway, who was staying overnight in the girl's home in Fairfield in the care of the girl's mother.
The state hasn't released the cause of death but Brooklyn's mother was told that her daughter had ingested medication and had been suffocated.
The 10-year-old is the youngest to be charged in a Maine homicide in at least 30 years. The girl has been named in court filings but The Associated Press generally doesn't identify juveniles accused of crimes.
