A mother and her boyfriend are facing charges in connection with the death of a 3-year-old girl in the Bronx.

Police say officers found the girl unconscious at a home on Manhattan College Parkway in Fieldston Monday night.

She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Sources say her mother's boyfriend, 25-year-old Leon Walters, was home with the girl at the time and said she had fallen, but sources say bruises were found on the girl's thighs and back.

Now, Walters and the girl's mother, 22-year-old Sherika Stewart, are charged with assault, reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say more charges could be added once a cause of death is determined.

The medical examiner says autopsy results were inconclusive. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
