Coroner Pam Gay said the definition of homicide was death at the hands of another, "and there's no way (the child) did this to herself."

Thirty-year-old Regina Lester of Thomasville is charged with criminal homicide, child endangerment and terroristic threats.

Defense attorneys listed in court documents for Lester didn't immediately return calls seeking comment Saturday.
