Prosecutors: Emilliano Terry suffered from blunt force trauma to the head, skull fractures

CLEVELAND - Camilia Terry, the 20-year-old mother of Emilliano Terry, appeared before Judge Pinkey Carr Thursday morning in Cleveland Municipal Court.

Terry did not plea during her arraignment. Prosecutors asked for a high bond because her toddler Emilliano suffered from blunt force trauma to the head, skull and rib fractures and a lacerated liver. They claim Camilia is a flight risk.

Terry waived a hearing and a preliminary hearing will be held on Dec. 6.

The judge handed down a $2 million bond cash surety and said Terry is to have no contact with her children by any means.

The body of Emilliano was found Monday night at a waste processing site in Oakwood Village inside a duffel bag, assistant county prosecutor Brian Murphy said.

Terry has been charged with murdering her toddler. Police said in a news conference Wednesday she has a lawyer and has stopped speaking with them.

Deputy Chief Edward Tomba said Terry did give a statement to the FBI.

Police said more charges could be filed against Terry.

Terry was a full-time student at Tri-C, studying to be a paralegal since June.
