The Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office has charged 38-year-old Thomas Dellamano for the murder of his 6-month-old daughter Clara Mae Dellamano with two counts of First-Degree Murder. The charges came two days after Clara passed away.
First responders were called to a residence in Edwardsville, Illinois on September 28, 2021 for the child who was rushed to St. Louis Children's Hospital. She died October 4, 2021 at 12:43 p.m. Her injuries were a result of a shaken baby.
He is being held at the Madison County jail on a $1 Million bond, facing 20-60 years for each charge.
We will continue to report as more information comes forward. We do not know any additional information at this time. It is unknown what the circumstances at home were. Our hearts are heavy for Clara and the entire family, and pray that only the truth come to light, whatever it may be.
Rest in peace dear Angel.
