HIAWATHA (KWWL) -

The death of an 18-month old Hiawatha girl has been ruled a homicide by the Johnson County Medical Examiner.

Kamryn Schlitter died March 28, 2010, a week after being flown to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Hiawatha Police were called to 245 Clymer Road in Hiawatha on March 21, 2010 for a medical call.

When they got there, they found the 18-month old suffering from seizure-like symptoms.

She was taken to St. Luke's Hospital and later flown to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

The Johnson County Medical Examiner died from "Non accidental (inflicted) trauma of the head".

Schlitter was the daughter of Zyriah Schlitter and Nicole King.

Calls to Hiawatha Chief of Police Dennis Marks and Interim Linn County Attorney Jerry Vander Sanden concerning charges have not been returned.
