A Nashua, New Hampshire, woman is being charged in connection with the murder of her 3-year-old daughter, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General's office.
Katlyn Marin, 25, formerly of 14 Oak Street, is charged with second degree murder. She is accused of recklessly causing the death of her daughter, Brielle Gage, by assaulting her multiple times on Nov. 24 and Nov. 25.
Marin is expected to be arraigned on Jan. 5 in Nashua.
Gage's death was ruled a homicide in early Dec. Investigators cited blunt force trauma as a factor in her death.
Sharon Boucher, Gage's paternal grandmother, released a statement expressing gratitude for Marin's arrest.
"My family and I are extremely relieved that Katlyn Marin has been arrested for my granddaughter's murder," she said. "We will continue to follow this case carefully until its conclusion. We hope that in the end, justice is truly served for my beautiful granddaughter, Brielle, who didn't deserve to die in such a horrific manner.
Boucher thanked the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office and Nashua Police for their work.
