The woman accused of throwing her two-year-old granddaugther off a Tysons Corner walkway has been denied bond.

Carmen Dela Rosa of Fairfax, Va. threw the toddler from an upper-level walkway on Nov. 29, say police. Dela Rosa and the girl had been leaving the mall with family, including the child's mother. The walkway, about 40 to 50 feet above the ground, connects the mall with the fourth floor of a parking garage.

The little girl, Angelyn Ogdoc of Falls Church, Va., was rushed to the hospital, but died early the following morning.

Dela Rosa had often taken care of her granddaughter while the girl's parents were at George Mason University. Kat Dela Rosa Ogdoc and James Ogdoc met in high school and had Angelyn when they were 20. Angelyn's mother has graduated and works in school management, and her father is finishing his studies at the school.

Dela Rosa's lawyers say their client has had mental health problems for years.

A neighbor said he never knew Dela Rosa was having difficulties.

A preliminary hearing is set for next month.
