A vigil was held Thursday evening outside the place where a Cleveland child was allegedly beaten so badly it might have been the reason for her death.

Police say 5-year-old Ta’naejah McCloud was taken to University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital via EMS with “massive head trauma,” last Friday. She died on Tuesday.

Ta’naejah McCloud’s mother Tequila Crump and her mother’s girlfriend Ursula Owens have now been charged with Felonious Assault.

The charges could be amended as the investigation continues.

Cuyahoga County Spokesperson, Mary Louise Madigan confirms to WKYC Channel 3’s Hilary Golston that a Child Welfare Investigation had been opened on Crump in February.
