Girl, 10, Accused Of Killing Baby Appears In Court

SKOWHEGAN, Maine (October 22, 2012)--A 10-year-old girl who’s charged in the death of a Maine infant bit her nails and looked down during her first court appearance Monday morning.

The youngster entered a plea of "no answer" during her arraignment Monday in District Court in Skowhegan, Maine, on a juvenile manslaughter charge.

The girl is charged in the July 8 death of 3-month-old Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway, who was staying overnight at the girl's home in Fairfield in the care of the 10-year-old's mother.

The state hasn't released the cause of death but Brooklyn's mother was told her daughter had ingested medication and was suffocated.

The girl is the youngest to be charged in a Maine homicide in at least 30 years.
