A former Mt. Vernon teen has been charged with two counts of first degree murder in connection with the death of her 3-year-old daughter.

Bianca Nicole Starr was taken to Herrin hospital, where she was pronounced dead, and Karrae Starr was arrested on charges of aggravated battery of a child.
An autopsy was conducted Sunday.
