      2 possibilities: Drugs or shaken baby syndrome because of the boyfriend's temper tantrum. Either way, say us all money and just shoot the POS. Then you look real close at the poor excuse of a mother. Seems her whole life has been one bad turn and decision after another.

      Edit: The arrest warrant issued was for murder.

    Interesting information from another news source -

    "It happened around 11 in the morning at the St. Paul Terrace Apartments off of Emerson Avenue.

    Investigators say the 1-year-old was home with her mother's boyfriend and 2-year-old sister.

    Police say there's no evidence the child died of natural causes.

    "To my belief or knowledge today I don't know that there was anything medically wrong with the child that would cause or influence the death that we saw yesterday," says Parkersburg Police Chief Joe Martin."
