Woman throws young granddaughter to her death

A Virginia toddler was walking out of a shopping mall with relatives when her grandmother suddenly flung her over a railing, sending the girl on a fatal plunge to the pavement several stories below, police said. Carmela Dela Rosa, 50, of Fairfax was arrested and charged with murder, a prosecutor said. Authorities said interviews with witnesses and Dela Rosa led them to the conclusion that the girl’s fall was no accident, but they couldn’t yet explain why the grandmother threw her.
