Five-year-old Tatianna Garcia died Thursday after she was found in the truck of her mother’s car, the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office said.
Garcia’s mother, 29-year-old Aquelin Talamantes, was arrested and charged with murder.
Sacramento Police showed up at an apartment complex near Pocket Road and W. Shore Drive to check up on the welfare of the girl. Family members told officers that Talamantes had driven Garcia there from their home in Davis.
Garcia was found unresponsive in the trunk of Talamantes’ car. She was later pronounced dead.
