Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Police Department detectives with the Special Operations Homicide Unit have charged 44-year-old Toni Camia with Aggravated Child Abuse/Neglect/Endangerment of a child less than eight years old and First Degree Murder in perpetration/attempt to perpetrate a crime for the death of 5-month-old Angel Stanford.
On August 6th, 2021, at approximately 8:00am, Clarksville Police Department officers responded to a residence on Hadley Drive for a baby that was unresponsive. The baby’s grandmother, 44-year-old Toni Lynn Camia stated that she “took a bath with the baby and fell asleep” and that the baby was not breathing.
Detective Benjamin Goble is the lead investigator and an autopsy of the baby determined that the primary cause of death is probable drowning and a contributory cause of death was acute methamphetamine intoxication.
This information along with additional evidence from the investigation including blood results showing methamphetamines in Toni Camia’s blood was presented to the Montgomery County Grand Jury earlier this month.
An indictment was issued for Toni Camia and it was served to her at the Montgomery County Jail where she was already incarcerated on unrelated charges. Camia’s bond was set at $300,000 and there is no other information available for release as this case is pending prosecution.
