A Porterville mother is under investigation for the death of her 5-month-old baby.
Police said they went to Sierra View Medical Center Monday night at around 9 p.m. and were told a baby that was brought for treatment wasn’t breathing.
That baby girl was pronounced dead by the time officers arrived.
Officers arrested the girl’s mother, 20-year-old Angelica Castro, and charged her with homicide after an investigation showed the baby was severely wounded.
Castro is being held without bail.
