Kenyan woman mourns loss of baby killed by her husband in the US

An autopsy revealed the child's death was due to blunt force.

Police were called to a home on Sommerset Drive Wednesday, Feb. 21 regarding the death of a small child.

Blunt trauma

According to the Alabama Department of Forensic Science (ADFS), an autopsy revealed the child's death was due to blunt force.

Lucinda Tilley lives nearby the home and said she would have never seen this coming.

''It's terrible...we saw the welfare department come and take the rest of the children yesterday as well."

Tilley says the one-year-old was a twin and there was another child under the age of 10 living at the home as well. Neighbors say the mother was out of the country when this alleged incident happened and is expected to return soon.

Community shocked

''You know this kind of thing happens, but you look at the people around you and don't think it would happen right here," Tilley said.

A source close to the investigation says there are more charges expected to come with this case.

The case is still under investigation by Phenix City Police and the Russell County Department of Human Resources.
