Authorities in Indonesia have identified a nanny as a suspect in a murder case that took the life of a two-month-old baby girl. Deddy Kurniawan, the police crime unit chief commissioner of Depok, West Java, said Romlah, a 66-year-old nanny, was suspected to have killed the baby on January 28 because it would not stop crying, The Jakarta Post reported.

He added that the woman had been getting annoyed by the baby crying, despite having fed her milk. According to the autopsy, the baby was pinched to the point of bleeding on her cheek, nose and lips.

The police chief added that Romlah put the baby on her stomach after feeding it, which led to her suffocating. If found guilty of the crimes, she could face a maximum penalty of 15 years of imprisonment.
