Infant on life support after severe case of child abuse

A 2-year-old girl has been declared brain dead and her legal guardian is under arrest, accused of murder in Kings County.
In the South Valley a two-year-old girl is on life support after what investigators are calling a severe case of child abuse.

The Kings County Sheriff's Department has arrested the girl's legal guardian, 28-year-old Rosa Ramirez Najar.

According to investigators, a 911 call first came in just after three Friday afternoon.

When first responders arrived at the home on Kansas Avenue outside Hanford it was clear something was wrong.

The two year old girl was unresponsive and had suffered multiple injuries including a skull fracture.

"The baby has been declared brain dead, they are keeping it alive on a ventilator to see if there is any possibility of harvesting organs or any kind of donations like that," said Dave Putnam, Kings County Asst. Sheriff.

Detectives say potty training issues with the child allegedly enraged Najar possibly leading to the abuse.

The child's biological mother is currently in Kings County jail for burglary charges according to investigators, Najar is an in-law and has been the legal guardian of the child since late 2013.

Najar is now facing murder charges, her bail is set at $1.5 million.
