A Lafayette woman is under arrest in the January death of her 5 month old daughter. Raven Senegal, 20, was arrested Wednesday in Alexandria.
Back on January 29, Senegal told police she found the girl with a plastic shopping bag over her head inside their home on Zim Circle. The cause of death was thought to be accidental.
According to the Lafayette Police Department, detectives received new information just a few days ago that allowed them to obtain a warrrant for 1st Degree Murder.
Senegal is in the process of being transported back to Lafayette. The investigation continues.
