BALTIMORE, MD — After a six-month investigation, police have charged a woman with child abuse in the death of a baby girl that was poisoned with an enema.

Police began investigating 32-year-old Latayia Hutchins last November after police were called to a home for a report of a six-month-old baby not breathing.

The baby, Indira Henderson, was rushed to the hospital where she would later die.

After completing the girl’s autopsy, the medical examiner would rule her death a homicide by poisoning.

Investigators would find that Hutchins had been babysitting the girl when she got permission from the girls’ mother to give the baby an enema to help with a bowel movement.

During the administration of the enema, Hutchins used a lubricant that contained Lidocaine, a topical numbing agent sometimes used to treat irregular heartbeats.

Immediately after the enema was administered, Indira began convulsing and stopped breathing.

Hutchins, who reportedly worked for more than five years in clinical research at a Maryland hospital. was arrested on Thursday and charged with first-degree child abuse. She is currently being held without bail at Central Booking.

Enemas sure have been in the news a lot lately.

You have parents squirting bleach up kids’ assholes to cure autism, Gwyneth Paltrow promoting a $135 coffee enema kit to remove toxins, and that recent story where a lady pulled out her kid’s intestinal lining while performing an enema then posted the pictures on Facebook looking for advice.

What has started this trend? I blame social media, but I’m sure it was a stupid book or something.
