Police officers arrived at an apartment on Saturday morning after being told that the child was found not breathing.
According to reports, she had severe injuries, including a burn on her backside that was thought to be weeks old.
Aniyah’s death led to the arrest of Shamonica Page and Derick Roberson, 38.
Both are in custody in Arlington, Texas, charged with injury to a child. Neither are a relative of the victim.
Page admitted she repeatedly struck Aniyah where she had suffered previous burns to her bottom, and that she didn’t seek medical help for those injuries.
Instead, she used “home remedies” on the girl’s burns.
