Detectives say 2-month-old Baby Jade died Wednesday afternoon after three days on life-support at Las Palmas Medical Center in El Paso, Texas.
Police say the baby's 17-year-old mother was charged Monday with one count of child abuse causing death or great bodily harm.
The teen remains at the El Paso County Detention Center. Her name is not being released by The Associated Press because she's a juvenile.
Police say the baby's body will be transported to the medical examiner's office in El Paso for an autopsy. Las Cruces detectives say additional charges are possible in the case.
