A young mother and her boyfriend are facing charges in the death of a 1-year-old girl in Brantley County.
Marley Wilson, 18, and her boyfriend, 19-year-old James Cutshall III, are charged with murder after Wilson's 16-month-old daughter died Feb. 12.
The Brantley County Sheriff's Office was called to a home on Wilson Road Feb. 12 after reports that Wilson's daughter Anniston was having difficulty breathing.
Anniston's mother told officials that she put Anniston down with a bottle of milk and five minutes later, the baby was having problems breathing. She told officials that CPR was performed on Anniston.
Emergency personnel told officials that Anniston had bruising on her stomach and was not breathing. She was taken to a hospital in Waycross, where she later died.
An autopsy revealed blunt force trauma contributed to Anniston's death.
Wilson and her boyfriend were arrested for murder on Saturday morning.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Brantley County Sheriff's Office are continuing to investigate.
