    "The mother of a 7-month-old girl who was found dead with burns has been taken in for questioning as the investigation continues, a Dallas police spokesman said Thursday"
    "When police arrived at the home in the 2400 block of Randolph Street, they went inside, smelled something burnt and discovered the body of Starlotte Lang"

    A follow up

    http://www.nbc5i.com/news/6230914/detail.html

    "The continuing investigation into the cause of of 7-month-old Starlotte Lang's death has turned up few additional details by Thursday afternoon. The infant was found badly burned at a Dallas home in the 2700 block of Randolph Road on Wednesday."

    Medical Examiners initial report:
    "Investigators: Baby Died Before Body Burned"
    http://www.nbc5i.com/news/6259119/detail.html
    "We don't know if it's a homicide. We don't know if it's a natural death. We don't know what caused the death at this point," Cerda said.

    It could take months for the toxicology reports to come back.


    The mother is free and has not been charged with any crimes"


    They showed pictures of this on the news last night. It was a sceene of a bathroom and scorched floor in front of a space heater. It was awfull. I just cringed.

    Ugh! That's horrible. I wonder if the space heater malfunctioned, since the mother was treated for burns, as well? Weird.

    Ok First he says that she is throwing the baby across the room...

    "Lang said he witnessed the girl's mother, Charlotte Wilder, abuse the child. Lang said his arrest stemmed from him slapping the mother after the alleged abuse.


    "I happened to turn around, and I seen the baby fly across the room," he said."

    http://www.nbc5i.com/news/6285601/detail.html

    Then he says that he was puzzeled by the death,, Meanwhile he is sitting in Jail for beating the mother. Not sure how long he was sitting in Jail before the baby Died or was murdered...


    "Lang said he was puzzled by the death, given Wilder's behavior before the alleged abuse.


    "My wife was good to the baby," he said. "That's what I'm saying. I really don't know what happened. It got me puzzled and in denial. If she did something like that, man, her mind must have snapped. I been around her, like I said, for three years, and she never showed no sign of nothing to try to hurt the baby.

    They are still not calling this a homicide.. Since there was not any blunt force trauma to the baby... They are waiting on toxicology reports... ETA 6-9 Weeks.
