TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson woman is now facing a murder charge in connection with the death of her young son two years ago.

Kimberly Gail Self, 24, was arraigned Tuesday, June 5 on charges of first-degree murder and child abuse.

Self was arrested May 17 and was originally only facing abuse charges.

The Tucson Police Department said Self's 7-month-old son Victor suffered several skull fractures and brain bleed. He died Dec. 3, 2016 at a local hospital.

According to the interim complaint, Self had previously refused to get Victor medical help when he needed it.

"He was underweight, he was not given his vaccinations and Kimberly would not take him to the doctor when social workers requested her to," a TPD officer wrote in the complaint.

The TPD said Self's older child, a 3-year-old,was taken from the home and had several medical issues "directly related to neglect and abuse while under (her) care."
