Mother charged in death of baby girl

March 14, 2010


— A young Hutchinson mother has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of her 3-month-old daughter.

Brigit L. Hippen, 18, was arrested Friday. She is accused of unintentionally killing her daughter, Karina Perez, in a reckless manner.

Reno County District Attorney Keith Schroeder said in a brief news release that the child died from hypothermia and thermal injuries that investigators believe were caused by a handheld blow dryer.

The girl was rushed to a Hutchinson hospital last month, where she was pronounced dead.

Hippen’s bond has been set at $25,000 dollars.

I saw this in the paper after seeing all the high school students that were honored in the paper. It is so sad that this beautiful baby will never get the chance to reach her potential in life.
