Foster Mom Arrested Almost 1 Year After Child's Death
EDMOND, Oklahoma -- An Edmond foster mom has been arrested on a child abuse complaint in connection with the death of her foster child almost one year after the toddler's death, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
OSBI spokesperson Jessica Brown said Amy Holder, 38, was arrested in the death of 2-year-old Naomi who died at a rural Logan County residence on January 20, 2009.
The State Medical Examiner's Office originally ruled Naomi's cause of death as undetermined and did not suspect foul play. The OSBI later received a tip that the death was suspicious. Forensics experts were called in to investigate and determined the child died of blunt force injury to the head, abdomen and extremities.
Holder is in the Logan county jail on a $100,000 bond.
