    Bloomingdale Police have charged the mother of a 4-year-old who died Wednesday in Bloomingdale with murder.

    The 4-year-old. girl was pronounced dead on the scene.

    The family is from out-of-state and was, according to neighbors, visiting a grandmother who lives in the townhouse.  The mother was in the midst of a custody battle over the child, one neighbor said.  

    A law enforcement source said the family has a history of domestic violence.  

    Webber is due in court Sunday.
