FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A 23-year-old Florence woman was arrested by deputies Wednesday and charged with homicide by child abuse after she allegedly placed a foreign object in her three-month-old child’s mouth, causing the child to suffocate.

Jessica Lynn Mamaux of Mustang Road in Florence was arrested on Wednesday and charged, according to a news release from the Florence County Sheriff’s Office.

On or about August 29, Mamaux is alleged to have caused the death of her three-month-old child by placing a foreign object in the child’s mouth, resulting in suffocation, the release states. An autopsy reflected the manner of death as a homicide.

Mamaux is being held at the Florence County Detention Center pending a bond hearing before a circuit court judge.
