On Thursday, Baltimore police arrested the baby’s father, 21-year-old Anthony Ford, the same day family and friends were releasing balloons in Brailynn’s memory.

“It’s just hard for me to process, the fact that this young man did this to her,” Hazel Wilson, the baby’s grandmother said Thursday. “I think that’s a part of the whole mental thing for me right now — trying to accept first of all that my baby is gone and then that the guy that I called one of my kids is responsible for it. It’s just a lot to happen all at one time. It’s a lot to process.”

A preliminary hearing for Anthony Ford is scheduled for November 8th.

The family still plans to celebrate Brailynn’s first birthday, believing she’ll be there in spirit.

    Anthony Ford should recieve life in prison for the murder of baby Brailynn`s death. There was no cause for this incident. Justice for all babies, to violators with no compassion for life.
