Kylie Brewer -- Wyllow's mother -- Jon-Paul Bogdanowich Jr., and Kaylie Gossett face charges including first-degree murder and child abuse. Brianna Raidy faces a second-degree murder charge.

At noon on February 19th, deputies responded to the 2900 block of West Katapa Trail for a report of the 6-month-old girl, who was not breathing. 

Here is the full text of the medical examiner's opinion: 

The autopsy revealed a malnourished female infant with blunt force injuries of the head and extremities. Histologic examination of the tissues surrounding the blunt force injuries of the mouth and fractured right arm show evidence of infection as characterized by bacterial colonies and inflammation. Additionally, there are microthrombi and bacterial colonies involving multiple organs, consistent with sepsis. Toxicologic analysis of the blood was negative for medications and drugs. In consideration of the known circumstances surrounding this death, the available medical history, and the examination of the remains, the cause of death is ascribed to infectious complications of blunt force injuries with malnutrition as a significant contributing factor.
