A 7-year-old girl’s decomposing body was found in the closet of a vacant apartment in Georgia and now her mother has been charged in connection with her murder, according to police.

The neighbor went over and inspected the unit and found the deceased girl in a closet, officials said.

Authorities have not revealed the cause of the girl’s death, but they did announce that her mother, Alondra Hobbs, was charged with murder.

Investigators believe Hobbs-Jordan died a significant amount of time before the neighbor found then child's body. Previous reports indicated a graphic video showed a body in the closet with a purse on top of it and surrounded by debris.

Before the victim was identified, investigators believed the deceased girl was between the ages of 2 and 4, according to WAGA. The report stated the body had a full head of hair, though her arm and leg were decaying.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the last tenant moved out of the unit in question months before Hobbs-Jordan was found there. However, squatters had lived in the home at some point, according to other residents.

Hobbs was charged with felony murder and second-degree cruelty, according to authorities.

WAGA reported that Hobbs is currently at a local hospital under officer supervision and will be taken into custody after she is discharged. It is not known why she is hospitalized.
