Baby's Aunt Charged With Murder

2-year-old died of blunt force trauma

 Police in suburban Orland Park have charged a woman in the death of her 2-year-old niece.

Bhia Hadid was pronounced dead at Palos Community Hospital Sunday evening. An autopsy showed she died of blunt force trauma and her death was ruled a homicide.

The toddler's aunt, Nour S. Hadid, 25, lived at the home and told police she discovered her niece unresponsive, authorities said.

She was later charged with one count of first-degree murder.

Three other children living in the Orland Park home have since been removed and placed into protective custody, Department of Children and Family Services spokesman Kendall Marlowe said Monday.
