The medical examiner said an autopsy showed Elijah’s death was caused by violence and neglect, including facial and scalp injuries, acute fentanyl intoxication, malnourishment and pressure ulcers.

Prosecutors announced on Monday that Dauphinais was indicated on one count of first degree murder, one count of second degree murder, and three counts of witness tampering. She will continue to be held without bail and is set to be arraigned at a later date.
