A Broome County mother is facing murder charges in connection with the death of her young daughter. 

10-year-old BellaDonna Loke was found dead in her bedroom on Feb. 18, 2018.

On July 12, her mother, 30-year-old Serina Madden, was charged with second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. 

Back in February, Madden was charged for allegedly allowing her 2-year-old and 9-year-old to sleep and play in the same bedroom where her deceased daughter BellaDonna was, State Police say. 

BellaDonna was suffering from a “serious medical condition,” according to State Police in February. They did not elaborate.

Madden’s arrest comes after a lengthy investigation into BellaDonna’s death. 

She is being held at the Broome County Jail.
