TULSA, Okla. – A woman is in jail after she allegedly threw her 1-year-old daughter against a wall, resulting in the little girl’s death.

When the child was taken to the hospital, doctors found a skull fracture and brain bleed.

Police say Paul told them different stories, saying her daughter fell in the bathtub, hit her head on a toy and fell down the steps. According to FOX 23, Paul eventually admitted she threw her daughter against a wall.

Tuesday night, the 1-year-old girl died in the hospital from her injuries.
