Trial begins for babysitter accused of murdering little girl

AKRON, OH (WOIO) - Trial begins Monday for the babysitter charged with murdering a toddler.

Tiffani Calise is accused of killing little Aaliyah Ali in August at Briarwood Apartments in Green.

Calise's attorneys say they plan on fighting the ruling that the cause of death was Shaken Baby Syndrome.

Calise maintains she left the little girl in the tub for just a few minutes, and the child fell and hit her head.

Calise had her second child while behind bars.
