CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A woman facing charges in connection with the death of her 6-week-old baby is wanted by police, according to Cincinnati Crime Stoppers.

Brooke Hunter, 23, was indicted Sept. 14 on involuntary manslaughter and endangering children charges after the infant died on June 22 due to co-sleeping, the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office announced last month.

According to Hamilton County Assistant Prosecutor Amy Clausing, Hunter lost an infant to co-sleeping in 2021 and she was given a warning. Co-sleeping is when a parent brings their baby into their bed to sleep with them.

Because of that warning, the 6-week-old’s death has been ruled a homicide, Assistant Prosecutor Amy Clausing said.

correction: The woman accused in the co-sleeping death of her 6-week-old baby is facing charges of involuntary manslaughter and endangering children.
