A Brooksville mother is charged with first degree murder for the death of her infant child. 

Hernando County Sheriff's deputies say April Nichol Brooklynn Weber called 911 on Sunday afternoon to report that she accidentally dropped her 6-week-old baby, Aubrie.

The injuries to the baby were severe, she was rushed to St. Joseph's Children's Hospital where she died.

Doctors told detectives that the baby had bi-lateral skull fractures on the left and right sides of her head and bleeding within her skull. Doctors also told investigators that they resuscitated the infant three times.

Deputies say Weber later admitted she lifted Aubrie by the legs and threw the infant on the bed. The child bounced off the bed and onto the floor.  Deputies say Weber went on to admit she picked the child up and threw her again, striking the dresser.

On Facebook, Weber had posted several photos of Aubrie.  Her husband, Harry Weber posted this today:" It has come to light that April has lost her temper at Aubrie... I knew she had problems at times with Aubrie, but never in my life did I imagine it would come to this."

Weber is being held without bond in the Hernando County Jail. She is charged with felony first degree murder and child abuse.
