Birmingham Child Abuse Arrest

A Birmingham mother is charged with killing her daughter by reportedly pouring bleach down her throat and sitting on her.

12-year-old Jasmine Archie was buried over the weekend.

Her mother, 31-year-old Tunisia Archie was in jail and didn't ask to attend funeral services.

Jasmine was pronounced dead the day after Thanksgiving.

Police say the mother did admit sitting on Jasmine and pouring bleach down her throat.

They are still waiting on the toxicology report to determine how much,
if any of the bleach entered the little girl's body.

Police say Jasmine's death was probably caused by a combination of the bleach and asphyxia.
