Investigators said the mother was in a vehicle accident and rushed to a hospital around 6 p.m. Lewis was detained at the hospital by HPD officers and is now in the custody of HCSO homicide investigators.

Gilliland says deputies haven't determined why Lewis killed her daughter, though they believe she got into a fight with her boyfriend earlier Sunday. Deputies are now trying to find out if the incidents are somehow connected, according to the station.

Those family members called 911 and urged deputies to come check on the girl at the Timberwalk Apartment Homes located in the 5600 block of Timber Creek Place.
