An 11-year-old girl in Ohio has been charged with murder after she allegedly beat a two-month-old baby to death. The girl, who is not being named because of her age, went before a juvenile court judge and was ordered to undergo a mental competency exam before her next appearance. “We are trying to figure out what would motivate someone to do something like that,” Wickliffe Police Chief Randy Ice told reporters.” And so far, we haven’t come up with an answer.” The incident took place at an apartment in the city of Wickliffe. The girl’s mother was babysitting the infant Zuri Whitehead. She wanted to give the baby’s mother a break from caring for a newborn, police said. After the mother fell asleep on a couch, the girl took Zuri upstairs, Ice told the court at Tuesday’s hearing. She returned 45 minutes later, woke the mother up and said something was wrong with the baby, Ice said. Zuri was taken to hospital where she died during surgery. The Cuyahoga County Coroner’s office later ruled the death a homicide: the baby had massive injuries to her brain, liver, spleen and kidney, Ice said. She is being held at the Lake County Juvenile Detention Center.
