    A Brownwood woman was indicted for capital murder in the death of her 2-year-old son.

    According to court documents, Vanessa Nicole Narvaez, 21, told Texas Rangers that she slammed his head on the floor twice on Nov. 19.

    The baby's father, Daniel, said Vanessa told him that Anival climbed on a dresser and fell off.

    But an ER doctor said the injury the baby suffered was not possible "unless someone hit Anival halfway down with a baseball bat."

    Anival was taken to Brownwood Regional Medical Center.

    The hospital said the injury was consistent with shaken baby.

    Anival was transferred to Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth where he died during surgery.
