OXFORD, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say an Oxford woman has admitted to fatally shooting her 2-year-old daughter.

News outlets report 31-year-old Jennifer Michelle Bellah has been arrested on charges including murder and aggravated assault in the Tuesday shooting. A Newton County Sheriff’s Office release says Bellah called 911 Tuesday night and told dispatchers she had shot her daughter, Natalya.

Natalya was pronounced dead at the scene of the Oxford home. A pistol, bullets and a shell casing from the scene. The release says authorities believe Bellah acted alone, and authorities haven’t released a possible motive.

The GBI was expected to perform an autopsy on the child this week. Bellah is set to appear in court Thursday. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer to contact for comment.
