A Forest Hill man was being held without bail for allegedly killing his infant neice while she was in his care.

Colin Cristopher Wolf, 19, of the 2000 block of Bay Meadows Court in Forest Hill, was charged with first- and second-degree attempted murder, first- and second-degree assault and first-degree child abuse, according to a news release from the Harford County Sheriff's Office. Because the baby died, Wolf's charges are expected to be amended to murder, according to police.

The charges stem from a Thursday night incident at the man's home.

Rebecca Wolf, 52, told police she left her 2-month-old granddaughter in the custody of Colin Wolf while she went to visit family, according to police.

Rebecca Wolf said the baby was asleep in her bassinet around 9:45 p.m. when she left. When Rebecca Wolf returned home around 10:50 p.m., she discovered her granddaughter had suffered serious injuries, the news release states.

The baby was taken by ambulance to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air then transferred to Johns Hopkins Hospital where she she was initially listed in critical condition. The infant later died.

When the grandmother returned home, the younger Wolf immediately left. Police found him at a home in the 1800 block of Trudeau Court in Forest Hill.

Detectives believe Colin Wolf hit the infant in the face, the release states.

He was ordered Friday held without bail at the Harford County Detention Center pending trial.

Sweet heart... She did do something wrong... I'll put it like this..if I left my child with a 10 year old boy or girl with my 2 month old baby and something horrible happen...I would be held responsible for what happened. ..you just dont leave a child with someone who's unfit to care for that child... IT'S THE LAW!!

If he would of received the help he needed...maybe this would of never happen...bottom line he should of never been left alone with that baby. That poor poor baby :(..

Unfortunately, he will probably not go to prison - he will be found mentally insane and be allowed to spend the rest of his life numbed out on anti-psychotic meds - which is a state of mind he prefers based on the videos I saw.

I read that too - that the mom was with the grandmother... not sure if this report omitted that or perhaps the updated article is incorrect. Either way, this baby was called to Heaven for a reason...

I agree. The police hopefully will investigate and find out that this neglect has been going on far to long. Hannah herself has spoke of the way her mother neglects her older sister .

How what a screwed up situation/family. God Bless the baby. May not be a good thing to say but, the Baby in now in a better place. How can any mother make comments on this web page when her 2 month baby just died. I would rather be dead myself,rather make comments on the web about the CRIME ! RIP baby Angel !

I feel that everyone who knew anything about the situation at this home, first hand, should come forward, for the sake of the baby, and speak your mind to the prosecutor or who ever is investigating the crime. Also, Colin shouldn't be the only one to fall for this crime. The mother and grandmother knew he wasn't able to care for that baby. What was so important at 9;30 at night, to leave home to go to Edgewood? Why didn't one of them stay behind? In the article I read, it says Colin told the police that Hannah didn't deserve to be a mother. Wow, what did he know? sure hope this is thoroughly investigated! Might I add that when I look at each one of their facebook pages, Colin, Hannah, Rebecca Wolf, they all had been advertising for the new daycare they was about to run out of their home. This is what got me..it says, Ladybug daycare, we want to give your child the nurturing, loving, educational environment they deserve. Excuse me, but from what I am reading, it looks like the grandmother couldn't do that for her own kids! CPS, best not give them a licenses to open it. Also, they have since deleted it from their facebooks. Guess they didn't want that to be seen, so it wouldn't mess it up for them? Please note that there is another Lady bug daycare in Silver Spring Md. don't confuse it with this one.

What happened to Adam? Where was he with all of this?
Jason May 01, 2013 at 09:33 PM
You all don't know what you are talking about ! If you really knew this family then you would be saying that Hannah was a wonderful mother even though she was young she was better then the moms out there. Colin had a job at mars . How dare you people say all this horrible fake comments . You all should worry about your lives and not the wolf family !
Summer May 01, 2013 at 09:48 PM
You people act like you know everything when you don't . I agree with Jason! Hannah was such a great momma . Her mom was a good mom too! If they both knew Colin would hurt the baby then they would have kicked Colin out right from the start ! Colin had watched the baby before . He knows have to use his cell phone if there was an emergency . Colin isn't a "retard " he just has comprehension problems. He isn't a crazy person . In those videos he was told to act like that. If you listen closely you can here the rude people . I'm sure you people leave your kids with your daycare provider. And how do you know they aren't going to snap. Exactly you don't know just like Hannah and Becky didn't know Colin was going to do this. Just stop posting horrible comments an leave the family alone.

The infant's father, Adam Roberts, is in jail on drug charges. Not sure where he was the night of the crime. I appreciate all of Hannah's friends & family members coming to her defense; but the fact still remains that an innocent baby is dead and prior to her conception- many poor choices were made. Many Harford County parents know all about this family.....so, many of us know exactly what we witnessed over the years. The public will soon know why Becky & Hannah had to go to Edgewood at 9p. It is in fact- all tax payers business what and why this happened since it is our tax dollars providing for Colin & his defense. So- where many of us concerned citizens appreciate the "mind your own business" comments- we will continue to be deeply involved in this tragedy and it's final outcome.

Where Can I find this video of Colin?
Sarah Johnson May 13, 2013 at 02:21 PM
AMEN! Where can I find the police reports?
TFJ May 16, 2013 at 05:26 PM
What bothers me the most beside the fact that they left Colin in charge, was why did Hannah and her mother both had to go? Why didn't one of them stay behind? I just can't fathom what may have taken place in that home when they all left the house leaving Colin with the handicapped sister. Something tells me that none of this will be investigated. They'll just Charge Colin. Not fair justice at all if that happens.

Hannah dont let these rude ass People get to u .... We dont know wut all happened Its Not ur fault ... Im sorry for ur loss bby girl Keep ur head up... And hope justice Is served
DD May 17, 2013 at 03:34 PM
Sarah Johnson YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF. IDK CARE WHAT/ HOW/ WHEN/ WHO/ OR WHERE. AN INNOCENT CHILD IS NO LONGER HERE. THAT! SHOULD BE YOUR MAIN CONCERN... not the mom, not her age, none of that. I was a 16yr old mom (now my daughter is almost 7). I let ppl baby sit when I had school or when her grandma wanted to keep her b/c she loves her! THIS is what's wrong with society. Where is compassion? What... you've never regreted anything? You sit there and think that mother isn't going to mad at her self? Like ppl who argue with loved ones not knowing they are about to be killed in a car accident. Girl, grow up. You are not God! Hannah, forgive these people and forgive the accused killer. I know its sounds stupid and hard. You need to be able to go on with life seeking God and blaming NO ONE. Everyone will be judged! one day, you'll have another child and you will that child with all your heart and your baby will watch over that child as she does you.

I am amazed at how cruel people can be. Reading through these comments just breaks my heart. People blaming a young mother and saying she wanted her baby dead. Other people saying she was probably out sleeping around. I don't know his family and I don know the whole story. From what I have read it was her brother who is to blame, who did this terrible act to this precious baby. I am a 40 year old single mother. I have to work to provide for my children so I have to depend on other people to watch my children. Does that make me a bad mother? . It doesn't matter how old this mother is or what she was out doing. It doesn't matter if it was 2 in the afternoon or 10 at night. . She is not the who killed her. I really pray that the people making these cruel comments live perfect lives...if not I also pray that you are not judged as harshly for your mistakes as you have judged this young mother. Hannah, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I know firsthand anyone can change. A drug addict can become clean. An alcoholic can stop drinking. So why is her past being brought up? She can change like anyone else. I've seen multiple pictures of the child. If you don't care about your child you're not going to spend a ton of money on cute clothes, shoes, bows, etc. You'll do the bare minimum and spend the money on yourself. And who cared where she was!? She could have been at Walmart after work picking up diapers. I'm a great parent and still get a baby sitter from time to time. I don't drink or anything of the sort, but sometimes I like to go to the movies. So even if she was out doing something besides working, as long as it wasn't anything that could effect her parenting, then it should be ok. I'm not saying everyone is innocent. But the mother shouldn't be blamed. She didn't directly put the child in harms way. We should pray for all of them. Whether it be for healing of mental illness and so they'll learn and make better decisions later on. And if you don't pray, then pass this story along so others will benefit from it. Maybe they'll think twice about who they let watch their child

For those of you making rude comments towards the mother have some damb respect! She shiuld be able to leave her child with family at anytime with no worries. So shut the hell up an grow up! #close minded #ignorant
ThomasTucker June 02, 2013 at 05:46 AM
Not to mention the people on here who are being so disrespectful are probably some of the same people who may push people like Colin to the mental state they are in. So In a way all of them can share some of the responsibility.
ashley disaia June 17, 2013 at 03:16 PM
he deserves the death penalty, killing a harmless innocent baby! he looks like he isn't all there in the head!

Nice English or whatever language you speak. I hope you aren't a product of Harford County Schools-scary if you are.

This story has made it's way to Florida where I read the mother's comments & pictures of the little Angel. Someone actually had the guts & nerves to put this link on one of her photos where I then read the story. Let's be real here, who in their right minds leave an infant with a mentaly disabled person?I have a younger cousin who is mentaly disabled & as much as I love him & defend him when people make fun of him, I WOULD NEVER LEAVE MY DAUGHTER WITH HIM. I know if I ever did that I would make an awful mistake that would haunt me forever.my point here is, If it was an accident I hope the mother gets through this horrible tragedy. However, if half these people are right about her & her mother, I pray justice is served & they too are charged with the horrible accident, either way, I'm sure this incident will haunt them with guilt for the rest of their lives.
Delinda Marcotte July 08, 2013 at 01:56 AM
I would just like to say that I am a mom of two precious little angels. I do not know this family all I know is what I read and of course you can't believe all you read. However I know that the grandmother was left in charge of the baby girl, the brother had mental issues, and mom was at work or wherever and also the family had a history. I have sat here and read all of these comments and it does amaze me by some of the responses. This young man should be held accountable for what he did to the precious baby. He sprayed deodorant in her face and punched her in the face and multiple other things to have done so much damage to cause her death and all bc he said that his sister didn't deserve to have a baby.....I have read people say "oh well we all have babysitters and we all leave our children with someone and anyone could snap and us not know it." That is true, but I as a mother know damn good and well that if I knew someone already had issues and was unstable I would never leave my most precious gift given to me by God in their hands...,,!!!!!! The grandmother should be held accountable not the mother. Also if you look at the pictures of the baby in her little two month span on this earth she was always well dressed and looked very well takin care of. All of this arguing from everyone and name calling will not bring this amazingly beautiful little angel back. So everyone just get bk to the big picture just pray for Aubree now and pray that justice is served...

THIS IS JUST SO SAD! This poor young man, I do NOT know their story but I can tell you this... My daughter is autistic and I would NEVER leave her alone with a baby.... I hope all involved can find peace and find the answers !
