TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Recently released documents paint a disturbing case of child abuse that ended with the death of a 6-month-old Pima County girl.

Doctors said Wyllow, the young child who died Feb. 19, was bruised, bloodied and had multiple arm and leg fractures, including a right arm that was "grossly" displaced.

Three people, including Wyllow's mother Kylie Marie Brewer, are now facing felony child abuse charges. 

The 19-year-old Brewer and Jon-Paul Bogdanowich Jr., 18, were arrested Tuesday, Feb. 28, while Kaylie Ryan Gossett, 22, was arrested the next day.

A week before Wyllow's death, the Pima County Sheriff's Department was called to the home to do a welfare check.

According to the court documents, Wyllow's biological father requested the check after Brewer allegedly posted about injecting drugs on social media. The deputy found that Wyllow was clean and appeared to be in good health at at time.

Wyllow's condition was very different Feb. 19, the day she died at a local hospital.

Doctors told investigators the 6-month-old had bruises on her head, blood in her mouth and nose, fractures on both arms and legs, a right arm that was "grossly" displaced and her skin had started to marble. 

Brewer claims she was hospitalized with pneumonia from Feb. 16-18 and Gossett and another woman were babysitting her child. Brewer said Gossett usually babysat five to six days out of the week.

Brewer and Bogdanowich both claimed Wyllow had bruises on her head, bite marks and a cut between two weeks to a month ago. 

Brewer said she never reported Gossett for these injuries because she was threatened by Gossett and claimed Gossett wouldn't allow her to see Wyllow sometimes.

She also said Gossett threatened her and said she would tell police, the landlord, and the Department of Child Services if Brewer ever reported the bruises. 

However, Gossett told deputies she told Brewer on several occasions to take Wyllow to the emergency room. 

Deputies found a wooden pipe, digital scale and needles with unknown substances in the home. Brewer and Bogdanowich admitted to using meth on Feb. 14. 

Gossett admitted to selling drugs but said she did not sell when she was taking care of the child.
