A 16-year-old Dundalk girl was charged as an adult yesterday with the murder of her 20-month-old son two days before Christmas, according to Baltimore County police.
Latonya T. Crawford was arrested about 11 a.m. at her home in the 800 block of Jaydee Avenue, where she resides with a relative, and then taken to the North Point precinct and charged with first-degree murder, according to Sgt. Stephen R. Doarnberger, a police spokes- man.
A District Court commissioner ordered the girl -- a single parent -- held on $50,000 bond.
A bail review hearing is to be held by a District Court judge today.
The charge came more than a week after the death of Todd Terrell Crawford and followed an assistant state medical examiner's decision to rule the death a homicide, Sergeant Doarnberger said.
