SANFORD, Fla. — (WFTV) The mother of a Sanford child whose body was discovered buried earlier this month has been arrested on murder charges.

Sanford Police said Wednesday that Rachel Fryer, 32, who was being held in the Seminole County Jail, is charged in the death of her daughter 2-year-old Tariji Gordon.

Tariji's body was found in a shallow grave in Crescent City, about an hour north of Sanford,

Fryer was arrested on charges of aggravated child neglect for failing to report her child was missing.

According to investigators, Tariji Gordon, stopped breathing and instead of calling 911, Fryer attempted CPR. Investigators said 30 minutes later, the toddler was dead.

Fryer’s original arrest papers said she turned herself in at the Sanford police station with a bag packed for jail and told detectives she made a deadly mistake.

Fryer also faces a number of other charges in connection to Tariji's death.

Here we go... deadly "mistake"... how long before the race baitors are having marches for mommy? I have a feeling there was a whole lot more to this story than we are hearing. Again with the simple question, what in the world mated with this beast to have a kid to begin with? Jeepers maters, think about your actions prior to taking them... well ok, maybe not but remeber theres no long term effects when using the old rosy palm and her five friends to help in time of need! Stay away from the beastiality, for the love of everything holy!!! GROSS
