Norfolk Police detectives have charged two people in connection with the death of a child.

Norfolk Police and Fire-Rescue responded to the 100 block of Balview Ave. around 8:15 a.m. Friday morning for an 11-year-old unresponsive girl.

According to officials, the child had serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The girl's mother, 33-year-old Latoya Smith, and Smith's boyfriend, 43-year-old Demont Harris, have been charged with murder.

Smith and Harris are currently being held without bond at the Norfolk jail.

Neighbors said the young girl's name is Heaven and she had cerebral palsy and was autistic.

They also mentioned that her favorite colors were purple and pink.

The community plans to remember the 11-year-old with a candlelight vigil on May 25.
