Buffalo mother accused of killing 4-month-old daughter

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A mother from Buffalo’s west side is behind bars for allegedly murdering her own baby.

According to police, 23-year-old Denay Foster is charged with second-degree murder in the death of the 4-month-old. It happened in a home on the 300 block of 14th Street.

Officers were called to the Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo late Wednesday night, where the little girl was pronounced dead. It’s unclear who brought her to the hospital.

An autopsy by the Erie County Medical Examiner’s Officer concluded that the child died of blunt-force trauma to the head.

Foster is being held without bail at the Erie County Holding Center. She’s due in court next week.
