I don't recall reading that the child watched her mother die. The articles posted this morning state that duct tape was wrapped around the mother's head and that she was in a laundry hamper in the child's closet, but that doesn't mean that the child witnessed this.

“The prosecutor said Taliyah was also asphyxiated to prevent her from identifying her mother’s murderer.
“Taliyah’s killer took her and killed her because she was a witness to the murder of her mother,” MacPhail said.”
