Alaiyah Crockett & Micahyah Crockett

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Indiana's Department of Family and Social Services confirms it was "actively assessing" a child injury case involving Nyesha Crockett and her 23-month-old daughter Alaiyah reported in February.

The child remains hospitalized in a vegetative state.

Last weekend, Nyesha Crockett was charged in the death of another one of her children, 11-month-old Micahyah Crockett.

A spokesman for the state says the Department of Family and Social Services received a child injury report in February and was still actively assessing that case when the second case occurred.
