A central Kentucky woman has been arrested, charged with killing her child.

The Clark County Sheriff says 34-year-old Jessilyn Robinson killed four-year-old Faith Robinson back in May.

At the time, police say the girl's adoptive mother claimed the child fell in the bathtub but doctors say the injuries weren't consistent with a fall.

An autopsy showed the girl died of a subdural hematoma and that she had suffered retinal hemorrhaging. These findings are consistent with violent shaking according to the Clark County Sheriff.

Robinson now faces a charge of wanton murder. Her husband maintains custody of their two other children and Robinson is allowed supervised visitation.

Robinson will be arraigned in Clark County Court on Wednesday, October 1st at 1:00 p.m.
