According to the Coweta County Sheriff's Office, Trinity Pittman faces charges of felony murder and first degree child cruelty in connection to the case. 

Authorities say the 2-year-old was rushed to Piedmont Newnan Hospital Friday night before being transferred to Egleston Children's Hosptial where doctors tried to save the child's life. However, authorities say the child died.

Pittman is now being held without bond in the Coweta County Jail, though authorities say more charges could be pending.
