LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A mother accused of murdering her daughter returns to Louisville.

Jessica Martinez was booked at Metro Corrections on Tuesday. She's accused of beating her 21-month-old daughter to death back in 2008.

Records show Christina Lopez suffered injuries to her abdomen, along with bruising and rib fractures. She was taken to Kosair Children's Hospital in cardiac arrest.

The mother's boyfriend -- Mauricio Martinez -- was arrested in the child's death just last month.
