A Pennsylvanian mother who was charged in connection with the death of her three-year-old daughter will remain in jail.
Adriene Williams, 27, of Wilkinsburg is facing charges that she asphyxiated her little girl after she became angry about helping the toddler clean herself after using the toilet.
She was arraigned on Wednesday on criminal homicide, endangering the welfare of child, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse in the death of her daughter Adrionna.
According to an arrest warrant, Williams was allegedly struggling with the demands of being a single mom and suffocated her daughter.
She is also alleged to have constantly used a loud voice with her daughter and told her she didn’t want to play with her the day she took Adrionna to her grandmother’s home.
Additionally, she kept a notebook in her car, writing: ‘This single parent (expletive) is stressful, hard as (expletive). I hate that I’m doing it on my own. I’ve been struggling hard.’
She was taken into custody around 3 p.m. Tuesday and held in the Allegheny County Jail, without bail until her July 17 preliminary hearing.
According to police, Adrionna’s family had reported her missing on June 14.
