The baby whose parents are also Nigerians, according to the report, died after she was rushed to a hospital in Prince George's County.

Authorities said video camera footage revealed that Oyindasola, was asleep on a couch inside the house when the baby, who was in a walker, began crying and woke her up.

On waking up, the angry nanny tried to feed the baby, but without success. She then pulled the baby from her walker, removed the nipple from her bottle and forcefully fed her.

"She forcefully poured the two bottles of what looks to be milk down the baby's mouth, causing her to not be able to breathe, suffocating her, and eventually she died at the hospital,"Col. Harry Bond of the Prince George's County Police stated.

Charging documents say the nanny appeared to pour a large amount of white liquid directly inside the victim's mouth with the baby appearing to squirm and resist while being fed the first bottle, and then Oyindasola forced the contents of a second bottle into her mouth.
