Milwaukee woman charged in death of 7-week-old baby at her daycare

MILWAUKEE – A Milwaukee woman is charged with reckless homicide for the death of a 7-week-old baby who died at her daycare last week.
Thirty-seven-year-old Claudette Mitchell runs “WHO'S LUVIN YOU” daycare out of her home on Milwaukee’s north side. Last week, emergency crews were called to the daycare where the infant, Savaiyah Reid, was found unresponsive. 
A criminal complaint says Mitchell told police she put the baby down for a nap and when she checked on her about an hour later she was unresponsive and had scratches and blood on her face. 
Court documents show the baby suffered multiple fractures to her skull and bruising all over her body. Forensic investigators believe the baby died of blunt force trauma to the head.  
According to the criminal complaint, both defendants gave statements that investigators say were not consistent with the baby's injuries. 
It currently remains unclear to what happened that led to the baby’s trauma.
