A 23-year-old Mansfield woman faces a capital murder charge in the death of a 3-year-old boy Wednesday night, police said Thursday.
Andrea Nichole Jennings was in the Mansfield jail Thursday night. Bail had not been set.
The child, Brayden Cyr, was taken by ambulance from a Grand Prairie motel to the Medical Center of Arlington on Wednesday night with “suspicious injuries,” Mansfield police spokesman Thad Penkala said.
The boy was pronounced dead at 11:05 p.m. at the hospital. The Tarrant County medical examiner’s report did not list a cause or manner of death on Thursday.

Grand Prairie investigators determined that the child was injured at Jennings’ residence in the 1600 block of East Debbie Lane in Mansfield, Penkala said.
Jennings is an acquaintance of Brayden’s mother and is not believed to be related to the child, he said.
