Dominguez, the mother, is also charged with two counts of child endangerment for allegedly leaving Rebecka to bathe alone leading to her drowning.

Detectives believe that she enlisted her husband's aid in disposing of the child's body.

'The investigative team recovered what appears to be body parts, decomposing body parts, in this bucket that was located in the bedroom closet,' said Laredo Chief of Police Claudio Treviño during a press conference.
