Mother charged after baby's death

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WVEC) -- A Williamsburg mother is facing charges after her baby died.

A few weeks ago, police responded to a home on North Mount Vernon Avenue, near Monticello Avenue and Richmond Road.

Police are charging the baby's mother with child abuse. We're told 29-year-old Juana Escobar Portillo turned herself in at the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail on Monday afternoon.

We're still waiting to hear the circumstances surrounding the charges.
