Photo Posted On Myspace, mother Carlotta Peirce

A severely malnourished 4-year-old girl was found dead – tied to a crib – in a filthy Brooklyn apartment Thursday morning, cops said.

Marchella Pierce weighed only 15 lbs. when police found her dead in her mother’s apartment on Madison St. in Bedford-Stuyvesant about 7:30 a.m., police said.

Marchella’s body exhibited bruises that were consistent with trauma, police sources said.

The girl’s mother, Carlotta Pierce, 30, who calls herself “a proud parent” on her MySpace page, told investigators she checked on her daughter about 4 a.m. and she was fine, the sources said.

The mother claims that she checked on her again at 6 a.m. and was found unresponsive.

The city Administration for Children’s Services has previously investigated at least two complaints involving Marchella, the sources said.

The first case involved allegations Pierce had marijuana in her system when Marchella was born. The second case remains open, and no details were available, the sources said.

A spokeswoman for ACS confirmed the agency is investigating Marchella’s death, but refused to comment further.

Marchella, who had underdeveloped lungs, had at least two limbs tied to the crib with what appeared to have been twine, the police sources said.
