Next month will be the five-year anniversary of the death of a Bibb County toddler who authorities have alleged endured child abuse that led to her demise.
Fifteen-month-old Brandi Ellis died at a local hospital March 20.
She was in the care of three adults when she received a blunt force head injury.
Each of the adults -- Lashundra Monique Davis, 31; Robert Glover, 32; and her mother, 30-year-old Yonshae Larie Ellis -- were charged with murder.

Jury selection was held Monday for a trial set to include Davis and Glover.
Jurors went home Monday with the expectation of hearing opening statements Tuesday morning.
The trial was postponed after Davis pleaded guilty to cruelty to children Tuesday. The judge reserved sentencing until after she testifies at Glover’s trial, which is set to resume Wednesday morning.
Davis and Glover were released on bond in 2011, according to jail records.
The case against Yonshae Ellis is still pending but is being handled separately. She was released on bond in November 2010, according to jail records.
In addition to the head injury, Brandi Ellis had a fractured thumb, leg, shoulder and ribs, according to an indictment in the case.
