— A Siler City woman faces charges in court Monday for allegedly killing her 6-month-old daughter.

Police say Tara Womble's boyfriend took the child to the hospital last month because, he said, the baby would not stop crying. The baby died this weekend.

An autopsy showed the baby suffered head trauma and was abused before she was admitted to the hospital.

Police say Womble confessed to abusing the child. She is being held without bond.
