Florida woman arrested after allegedly throwing her 4-year-old daughter off bridge killing her

Authorities say a woman threw her 4-year-old daughter into a Florida river, killing the child.

At around 4 p.m. calls started coming into police from witnesses who saw the mother park near the river then drag the girl by her arms from the auto into the water. The girl was taken to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Officials in Tampa say the body of a small child was recovered following a report that a woman threw the child from a bridge.

Denson is facing charges of first-degree felony murder, aggravated child abuse and grand theft auto.

"Unfortunately", Dugan said, "when you're dealing with these tragic situations, we tend to have more questions than answers.we still have a tremendous amount of information to sift through".

"Eventually, we just saw the scuba divers out there pulling up with a body", said resident Romano Muniz.

Denson, authorities say, first stole a vehicle from a local auto shop and then drove to the water with her daughter. She told the paper Denson "didn't care" about her daughter. ". they felt paralyzed by the whole thing".

She is said to have been carrying the Christian holy book and wearing a bra, with her legs reportedly covered in grass or seaweed.

She was taken into custody and charged with murder.

"Our hearts hurt for the loss of Je'Hyrah Daniels".

Denson has previous arrests for driving with a suspended license and theft charges dating back two year ago.

The murder mimics that of a January 2015 case, when an unfit father threw his five-year-old daughter 60 feet off a bridge in Tampa Bay.

The Sheriff's Office released a statement Friday afternoon saying that on June 19, their Child Protection Investigation Division looked into a report of "inadequate supervision" against Denson.
