AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

On September 18, 2014, Laura Flores-Santiallian was indicted on criminal charges for the death of 7-week-old Emily Cortes.

The infant was found unresponsive while in the care of Flores-Santiallian on September 4.

The Summit County Medical Examiner has released the autopsy report of baby Emily, which says she died from blunt force trauma to the head. Her death was ruled a homicide.

A neighbor says that Flores- Santiallian had only cared for the child for four days at her home daycare which she has operated for about seven years.

It's unknown if Flores-Santiallian was licensed by the state to care for children in her home.

An arraignment hearing is set for Friday, September 19.
