VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — The case of a mother charged in the murder of her 2-year-old daughter will go to a grand jury.

38-year-old Leandra Andrade, has been charged with second degree murder along with child neglect causing serious injury in the death of her daughter, 2-year-old Lanoix.

The little girl was found dead at the Cutty Sark Motel on Atlantic Avenue just after 3:30 a.m. on August 1. In late October, the medical examiner’s office ruled her death as a homicide. Officials say she died from acute antihistamine toxicity.

An undercover city detective testified Wednesday that police found an empty box of 24 Unisom pills with pink crushed pills and residue nearby. An empty bottle of 36 gel caps, which were not further described, was also present, as well as a bottle of vodka but the detective said there was no evidence that either mother or child had consumed any of the vodka.

When police arrived, they found Lanoix already deceased, lying face up on the bed with a pink and white foam coming from her mouth.

A copy of a search warrant during the investigation into the case shows police seized an empty pill container, a glass bottle with powder, a laptop, two cell phones, several flash drives and other items from Andrade’s hotel room on August 1.

During Andrade’s court hearing Wednesday, a judge certified the case to a grand jury.

The toddler’s father had been recently awarded temporary sole legal custody of Lanoix before her death, but both parents were given equal physical custody of the child. Lanoix was scheduled to be with her mother when the two went to Virginia Beach that weekend before her death.
