BEDFORD-STUYVESTANT - Medical examiners are conducting tests on the Bedford-Stuyvesant toddler found covered in blood and dead in the arms of her mother.

The little girl was identified as Cathryn-Marie Newegbo.

Area workers reported that surveillance videos from a nearby bodega and restaurant showed Newegbo's mother holding her daughter while walking back to their home early Friday morning.

A short while later police found the toddler bleeding in her mother's arms in their Putnam Avenue apartment.

Police had been dispatched to the building after a 911 call about a person on the roof.

A trail of blood led responding officers from the roof to the Newegbo's apartment.

Police reported that the toddler's mother is currently undergoing psychiatric evaluation.
