MILWAUKEE (UTVS) – A mother in Milwaukee is being charged with first-degree homicide and child neglect resulting in the death of her 2-year-old. This comes after Lisa Simmons had recently had her daughter returned to her from child protective services this May.
Simmons told authorities she first noticed the burns on her daughter Zayanna on Thursday, but failed to get her proper medical attention as she was afraid of once again losing her daughter. As Simmon’s case with the Division of Milwaukee Protective Services remains open.
It is unclear if Simmons will have any representation in court.
