Essex County prosecutors say Yodia Encarnacion was pronounced dead at a hospital after the Monday night accident.

Prosecutors say a preliminary investigation indicates the child was playing with other children and fell out of an open window.

Authorities say the death remains under investigation by the homicide and major crimes task force of the prosecutor’s office, which includes Newark police detectives. No criminal charges have been filed.
