Firefighters responded to the scene early Tuesday morning around 7:30 a.m., and found Kaleenah under the bed, scorched to death, after extinguishing the flames. Leila didn’t make it home until around 9:45 a.m. She was taken into police custody where she’s being held without bail.
Leila was previously investigated by Administration for Children’s Services. Joe Muldrow, the baby’s great-grandfather, is the owner of the apartment building. He told police he heard a loud bang in Leila’s apartment prior to the outbreak. The fatal fire is being investigated as a possible arson.
