YUBA COUNTY, Calif. - The Yuba County Sheriff's Office arrested an Olivehurst woman who is suspected of killing her 1-year-old child.
The sheriff's office obtained a warrant for the arrest of Eleana M. Carbajal, 31, of Olivehurst, on Wednesday following a 4-month-long investigation into the suspicious death of her child in December of 2018.
The toddler boy would have turned 2-years-old in February.
He was brought to Rideout Hospital and was unresponsive just after 6:30 a.m. on December 24.
Carbajal said the toddler drowned in the bathtub earlier in the morning and that she had attempted CPR for several hours before bringing the boy to the hospital.
Authorities said there were inconsistencies in Carbajal's statements and medical professionals noted that the child had multiple injuries and appeared malnourished.
An autopsy and toxicology report stated that the child's cause of death was hypoxia due to acute aspiration pneumonia along with malnutrition and methamphetamine exposure.
Carbajal was arrested at her home in the 1500 block of 6th Avenue on April 24.
She was booked into Yuba County Jail on charges of murder and child cruelty. Her bail is set at $1 million.
