Firefighters putting out a fire in a Brooklyn apartment early Tuesday morning found the body of a 2-year-old girl who’d been left alone in the apartment by her stripper mother who’d gone out partying.
Kaleenah Muldrowâ€™s tiny body was found under a bed, presumably after hiding there in a panic when the blaze broke out around an hour earlier. Her mother, 20-year-old Leila Aquino,Â didnâ€™t return home until about 9:30 a.m.
Firefighters had put out the fire, but didnâ€™t even know a child was inside until Aquino showed up and cried that her baby was in there.
She told investigators that she’d left the little girl with someone…but then claimed she didnâ€™t know who she left her with.
She’s been charged with endangering the welfare of a child and reckless endangerment.
