DETROIT -- A Detroit woman has been charged with murder, accused of fatally beating her 2-month-old daughter on Christmas Eve and covering up her death. The woman's boyfriend is also charged in the case.

Detroit Police say Asia Wyatt's death was concealed until Christmas Day, when her mother called 911.

Charlotte C. Wyatt is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree child abuse and tampering with evidence. Leon F. Cole is charged with involuntary manslaughter, tampering with evidence and fourth-degree child abuse.

Not guilty pleas were entered for both Wyatt and Cole, who remain jailed. No attorney had been assigned to either as of Monday afternoon.
