CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -- Hamilton County prosecutor Joe Deters says he has spoken with the Hamilton County coroner's office regarding the death of Jenna Edwards, the 11-month-old girl who died last week in her mother's hot minivan.

According to the coroner, the autopsy and toxicology reports on Jenna Edwards are not expected until late next week.

Therefore, Deters will not make any decisions on charging her mother, Jonie Edwards, until that information is available and all investigative work is complete.
