Annapolis police charged a local woman with the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, according to a statement from the department.

After receiving a tip from a "concerned citizen" on Wednesday that the daughter had not been seen in recent days and was abused, police investigated the mother.

Police said investigators determined Chelsea Michelle Booth, 25, killed Kassidey Booth sometime earlier this week and disposed of her body. Police charged Chelsea Booth with first- and second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death.

Police said the investigation is ongoing and anyone with further information should contact Detective Pyles at 410-269-9000.

she did a hell of a lot more than "love" her daughter actually. she took away the rest of her life. mental problems or not, there is no excuse for killing a child. no "loving mother" could do that to her baby. its sad that people think any excuse is acceptable in a situation like this. she is a monter and i hope she lives the rest of her life in a cell. thats more than her baby will get to do.

I totally agree with Ashley and Jamie. The mother must be suffering from mental illness because someone in their right mind would not commit such a horrible crime to such an innocent little angel. I say lock up the monster so she cannot procreate again.

She claimed the baby had a muslim curse. All of this came about when the baby's father stopped dealing with her and stared dealing with a muslim. She is crazy. If your baby father doesnt want you.doesnt mean kill your child. Get over it and move on like he did. Stupid!!!!
