The Bibb County grand jury issued the indictment charging 49-year-old Cynthia Diane Baldwin-McClesky with murder and cruelty to children.
The body of Ruth Baldwin was found in July inside a van parked at an urgent care center. The Telegraph reports that autopsy results show the girl died of blunt force trauma, dehydration and starvation.
Baldwin-McClesky is being held in the Bibb County Jail. Jail records do not indicate whether she has an attorney.
