An Annapolis teenager who was charged with first-degree murder in a 2-year-old-girl's death remains at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center after being denied bail.

Timothy Darnell Height, 17, is being charged as an adult in the death of two-year-old Amoir Faith Turner.

She was found dead in bed Saturday, and early autopsy results show that she suffered several injuries, including a fractured skull, a broken leg and possible sexual assault, Annapolis Police Chief Michael A. Pristoop said at press conference Monday.

Police said Height was acquainted with the toddler's mother, Kiera D. Smith, 22 and believe that Height was left alone with the child.
