MANCHESTER, KY (WAVE) - A 21-year-old mother has been indicted on a murder charge in the death of her newborn baby.

An autopsy found the baby died from injuries related to blunt force trauma.
Bowling’s arrest citation said the baby had a cranial fracture, fractured ribs and a brain bleed.
She was previously arrested for the crime, but will be re-arraigned following the indictment.
