SUMMIT COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - A 21-year old Summit County babysitter's charges have been upgraded from Child Endangering to Murder.

The baby Tiffani Calise was watching died last week in the hospital. 23-month old Aaliyah Ali passed away at Children's Hospital Medical Center in Akron.

Police and paramedics were called to the Briarwood Apartments in Green the morning of August 10th, for reports of Aaliyah not breathing after being removed from the bath tub.

Initial reports indicated Aaliyah was left alone in a tub of water for a few seconds by a babysitter. At 4:30AM, detectives were notified Aaliyah had bleeding on the skull not consistent with earlier reports.

After some investigation Calise was arrested.

Tiffani's two-year-old daughter was removed from her custody and placed in the care of immediate family.

Her boyfriend tells 19 Action News that she is currently eight weeks pregnant with her second child.

Calise is being held on a $500,000 cash bond.
