A Preston County grand jury has indicted a woman who is accused of killing a one-year-old child she was babysitting.

Kelly Tusing, 23, was indicted on March 5 on one count of death of child by parent, guardian or custodian by child abuse. 

In November 2018, Tusing was babysitting a one-year-old and shook and/or hit the child by non-accidental means, court documents said. This caused a traumatic brain injury and subdural hemorrhage, resulting in Louk’s death, according to her indictment.

Tusing is being held in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail with bail set at $100,000.
