Woman Indicted After Dropping Child Twice From Second Story

A suburban mom accused of dropping her infant daughter twice from the indoor, second-story balcony in her home has been indicted on a charge of attempted capital murder.

Padmaja Sivaray Enjeti, 38, of Plano, was indicted by a Collin County grand jury last week.

Police say in November, Enjeti dropped her 22-month-old daughter onto the first floor of her Plano home and did it again while on the phone with a 911 dispatcher.

The child did not suffer serious injuries and is in her father's care.

Enjeti was ordered to undergo psychiatric treatment while out on bond.

She has been suffering from schizophrenia since the birth of her daughter, said Howard Shapiro, one of Enjeti's attorneys.
