Babysitter in court for death Youngstown two-year-old

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A 22-year-old Youngstown woman appeared in court to answer charges that she murdered a two month old child.

Traniqua Floyd was arraigned Tuesday on charges of murder, felonious assault and endangering children handed up by the Mahoning County Grand Jury.

According to the indictment, the Atkinson Avenue woman caused the death of Jamar Jones on December 12, 2013.

Investigators say Floyd was the boy's babysitter.

The coroner ruled the death a homicide, saying the child suffered head trauma.

Floyd remains jailed without bond until her next hearing later this month.

If convicted, Floyd could be sentenced to life in prison.
