Babysitter Charged With Murder in 23-Month-Old Child's Death

The child died on Aug. 22, 2012, Manassas Police said.

A Manassas woman was arrested Tuesday night in the 2012 death of a 23-month-old child.

Jessica Fraraccio, 21, of River Forest Drive is charged with murder and child abuse as a result of the ongoing investigation, Manassas Police Sgt. Lowell Nevill said on Wednesday. 

The child, whose identity isn't being released, died on Aug. 22, 2012 in a home in the 9300 block of Birchwood Court where police said the defendant was watching him.

Fraraccio was held at the adult detention center in Manassas without bond pending a court appearance in the Prince William County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, Nevill said. 

No prior information on the death of the toddler was released before the arrest because the cause and manner of death were still under investigation.

Stay with Manassas Patch as more information on this case is released.

They wouldn't have to waste taxpayers money on a trial if it was my child.

How do you know it was a murder?!! Innocent until proven guilty. I know this girl and she'd never do anything like this, the details surrounding it are unclear and unless you were there you can't know what happened exactly. I don't believe it was a murder.

I believe in innocent until proven guilty. But how many people who "know" people are SHOCKED at the atrocities that human beings are capable of???
