Police have charged a teenage boy in the sledgehammer attack ,that left his sister dead and a young cousin severely injured, when a two-year-old child arrived at the hospital with a fractured skull.

When detectives went to investigate at the home where the child had been staying, they found the body of 22-year-old Betsy Mary Smith in a padlocked room.

Smith, who lived at the home, had been stabbed and beaten with a sledgehammer.

Police said Smith's 16-year-old brother told a detective that had killed his sister.

Police said the teen then hit the two-year-old with the sledgehammer because she was crying.

Police said the teen then raped his sister, left her on the bedroom floor and locked the door, leaving the two-year-old girl and a one-year-old boy inside.

Sheriff Howard Smith said the victim was baby-sitting the children, who were her cousins.
