Mother arraigned today on murder charges of her 13-month-old daughter


A formal court appearance for the Conneaut, Ohio woman charged in the death of her 13-month-old daughter.

23-year-old Kelsie Blankenship was formally arraigned in Ashtabula County Court for the murder of her daughter, 13-month-old Sereniti Sutley.  Blankenship is being held on $250,000 bond.  Her boyfriend, Joshua Gurto, left the Conneaut apartment shortly after the death, which led to a multi-state two-week manhunt.  

Gurto was arrested outside Pittsburgh and faces charges including murder and sexual assault.
