(Scroll down for video) A pregnant woman was arrested after she beat her young daughter to death, police in Georgia said.

5-year-old Heaven Woods, lost her life at the hands of her own mother, 33-year-old Amanda Hendrickson.

The family recently moved to Forsyth, so that they can be with the mother’s new boyfriend, 34-year-old Roderick Buckner.

Sadly, the child allegedly died at the hands of the people who are supposed to be looking out for her.

Anthony Woods, the child’s biological father, is in shock. He cannot believe that his daughter suffered such cruelty at the hands of her own mother.

An autopsy revealed that the 5 year old died of trauma to the stomach. Medical examiners said that the child also had multiple old injuries, pointing to the child being abused over a long period of time.

Hendrickson and Buckner were arrested for the murder. They were both also charged with child cruelty amongst other charges. They are being held in the Monroe County Justice Center without bail.
