Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The autopsy for an unborn baby who was allegedly killed when it's mother was kicked in the stomach was performed today.

The Yakima County Coroner says the baby died due to a twisted umbilical cord.

However, they say they're not sure if the assault caused the cord to twist causing the babies death.
 
The suspect in the assault and possible homicide is 49 year-old Querida Guerrero, mother of the 22 year-old assault victim.

Guerrero is facing first degree Manslaughter charges and is being held on $1 million bail.
