Quezada then changed her story, saying she and her boyfriend hit Leiliana with a belt and bamboo stick after the shot heroin.

Quezada's boyfriend tied up Leiliana's wrists behind her back and put her in a position in a closet so she couldn't sit down.

The report says, "the defendant admitted that when the child was having trouble swallowing she began to slap the child on her chest... She also admitted to hitting the child on the back of her head while telling her to swallow her food..."

Quezada claims her boyfriend held Leiliana by her throat and shoved her against wall and then threw her.

According to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner, the Leiliana had "extensive bruising from head to toe."

The Medical Examiner ruled her death a homicide as a result of blunt force trauma to the abdomen and head.
