(SOUTH BEND) - A South Bend woman arrested after the weekend death of her 11-month-old son is also being charged with causing injuries to a young daughter in February that have left her in a vegetative state.

Police arrested 21-year-old Nyesha Crockett after Monday's death of 11-month-old Micahyah Crockett. St. Joseph County homicide unit commander Tim Corbett says Crockett threw her son on the ground and kicked him after becoming angry that his father was out with friends Saturday night and not responding to text messages.

County Prosecutor Ken Cotter says investigators also reviewed injuries that then-14-month-old Alaiyah Crockett suffered Feb. 1 and determined Nyesha Crockett lied about a scarf becoming accidentally wrapped around Alaiyah's neck.

Crockett is jailed on murder, battery and other charges. It isn't clear whether she has an attorney.
