Florida Woman Arrested And Charged In The Last November Death Of 14 Week Old Baby

A Florida woman is charged with second degree murder in the death of a 14 week old baby last November.

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office says a neighbor called 911 after 31-year-old Lily Schelp came to her door holding the unresponsive baby boy. The baby was taken to a Sarasota area hospital, then transferred to Tampa General Hospital where doctors found signs of head trauma. The child died November 10 of his injuries. Schelp told detectives she was the only one taking care of the infant.

An autopsy revealed a partially healed skull fracture and at least two recent impact injuries to the back of the child’s head. Deputies say these occurred while he was in Schelp’s care.

Schelp was arrested and remains jailed without bond.
