Officer said they responded to the apartments after Bunnell called the mother, who called the grandmother stating Khloe was unresponsive.

According to reports, Bunnell was arrested that night for “obvious bruising to Khloe, the conditions of the apartment, and delaying summoning medical assistance for several minutes before contacting EMSA.”

Police said bruising was found on multiple areas of the child’s body; and while the Chief Medical Examiner has not determined the cause of death, it was noted there were head injuries that appeared to result from blunt force trauma.

After reviewing the case, the District Attorney’s Office filed formal charges of child abuse murder and child neglect on Bunnell.
