ANDERSON, S.C.---An 18-year-old Anderson mother is charged with killing her infant daughter. Autopsy results show the child had been stepped on, choked and slapped.

Paramedics were called to her home the day before because her six-month-old daughter was not breathing. Investigators say the fatal injury to the child was caused when someone stepped on her.

Bowen has been charged with homicide by child abuse.
