AKRON, OH (WOIO) - A pregnant woman in jail for murdering a toddler she was babysitting is asking to have her bond lowered so she can leave jail to give birth.
Tiffani Calise is accused of killing little Aaliyah Ali last 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 is pregnant with her second child and remains locked up at the Summit County Justice Center on a half million dollar bond.
The judge has not yet ruled on her attorney's request to lower the bond.
Calise's trial is scheduled to begin April 11th.
