ATLANTA (AP) — Police in Georgia have arrested the mother of a 7-year-old girl whose body was found decaying in the closet of a vacant apartment.
Alondra Hobbs, 27, was charged with felony murder and cruelty in the second degree, DeKalb County police said on Facebook.
A police spokeswoman, Officer Elise Wells, said Hobbs was at a hospital Friday.
She was charged on Thursday, according to police.
An officer discovered the girl’s body last Sunday at an apartment complex outside Atlanta after someone called to report a dead child in the closet, according to a police report.
The officer said he saw what appeared to be a full head of hair and a decaying arm and leg in the closet.
Another officer found a piece of mail with the name Alondra Hobbs on it, according to the report. »
