24, and Cheyenne Cook, 19, both of House Springs, have been charged in connection with the death of a 2-year-old girl, authorities report.

On May 16, police and EMS responded to the 3800 block of Dorchester Court in House Springs, located about 30 miles southwest of St. Louis.

Emergency crews said the girl's body had multiple bruises and she was immediately transported to a hospital for further treatment. They eventually unearthed that Gamache performed several wrestling moves, including a "Batista Bomb", on the toddler that would hurt and eventually kill her.

Investigators have also revealed that there is digital evidence of Addie Cook's abuse at the hands of her mother and the latter's partner, with said digital evidence including communications between them to plan and hide evidence of the toddler's abuse.

Police said that Cook knew about the abuse but did not intervene or get medical help for her daughter, KTVI reported.

Cook has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child, a class A misdemeanor that carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail. A child having seizures at the residence was taken to the hospital, where she died several days later. Investigators say charges could to be upgraded in the case.

"This child was essentially tortured", Marshak said in a news release.

Gamache was originally charged last week with abuse and neglect of a child. In the Batista move, the person at the receiving end is picked up by their waist and is slammed onto the ground on their backs. Gamache had reportedly been causing harm to the child prior to this incident as well.

Gamache's bail has been set at $500,000 cash only, Cook's at $2,500.
