STEELTON, Pa. (WHTM) – A Steelton woman is charged in the death of her infant daughter last year.
Shante R. Plummer, 39, was charged last week with criminal homicide and endangering the welfare of a child.
Plummer’s 2-month-old daughter died on Oct. 28, 2018. Police and emergency responders were called to the 600 block of North Second Street for a report of an unresponsive child and could not revive the girl.
Dauphin County District Attorney Fran Chardo said the baby showed signs of abuse and died as a “result of violence.”
Plummer is in Dauphin County Prison without bail, according to court records. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 19.
