HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

A woman who is accused of hitting and killing a toddler last month in Westwood is behind bars.

Sheba Basabose is being held in the Butler County Jail by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). She was booked on Oct. 31.

Basabose has been indicted on two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and one count each of aggravated vehicular assault and vehicular assault. Police say she lost control of her car on McHenry on Oct. 8, crossed the center line, jumped the curb and hit a woman and her three small children who were walking on the sidewalk. One of the children, Rodriguez Taylor, 3, died at the hospital.

Basabose was scheduled to be in court in Hamilton County on Thursday, but the case was continued until Jan. 13.
