A 20-year-old Camden woman was arrested and charged in connection with the death of her 4-year-old daughter, authorities said Wednesday.
Lucy Gunter was charged with second-degree endangering the welfare of a child for failing to seek medical care for her daughter.
Police and paramedics responded about 8:15 a.m. Tuesday to the 1400 block of South Ninth Street and found the girl unresponsive with injuries to her face.
The girl was taken by ambulance to Cooper University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 8:58 a.m. No further details were released about the girl's injuries.
Gunter was being held at the Camden County jail pending a pretrial detention hearing scheduled for Friday.
Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Camden County Police Chief Scott Thompson said the case remains under investigation.
