Murder charges have been filed in the death of 4-year-old Seanita Brown, from Southwest Philadelphia.
Police have charged the girl's mother, Josephita Brown, with third-degree murder and endangering the welfare of a child.
Police say Brown took the girl to children's hospital overnight Tuesday.
She was bleeding from both ears and had bruising on her body.
The medical examiner ruled that Seanita died of a lacerated liver due to blunt-force trauma.
