Babysitter Kimora Hodges, 21, has been charged with first-degree child abuse and is being held on $250,000 bail, not 10%, but those charges will most likely be improved now that the boy is dead .
The boy’s mother, Taylor Starks, says she trusted Hodges as a babysitter, neighbor and friend and had watched the boy several times, according to TSWT 2 Detroit.
At 1:50 a.m. on June 14, Hodges sent Starks a photo of the baby and said he had an allergic reaction from eating a piece of soap. When she got home, she discovered baby Kyrie was having multiple seizures.
