On July 8th, three-month-old Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway was staying at the girl’s home in the care of the girl’s mother who called police to say the infant wasn’t breathing.
The baby was pronounced dead when paramedics arrived. The infant’s mother, Nicole “Nicki” Greenaway, says she was told that her child ingested medication and was suffocated. .
The state of Maine hasn’t released the cause of the infant’s death yet and chose not to try the girl as an adult.
If she is convicted as a juvenile, the maximum penalty she can receive is incarceration until age 21.
The Maine Department of Health and Human Services removed the girl from her mother’s care. In a letter, an agency case worker said the girl has a behavior disorder that made her unsuitable for caring for the infant.
The judge on Monday ordered a competency evaluation for the girl.
John Martin, the girl’s lawyer, said he felt the manslaughter charge was “too harsh” given his client’s age.
Because the teen is still a minor her identity has been withheld.
