BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) — Prosecutors have charged an Oklahoma woman whose 10-day-old baby was found dead in a washing machine with child neglect.
Lyndsey Fiddler appeared in court via video monitor from jail Sunday. She did not yet have an attorney and told the court she would apply for a court-appointed one.
According to police, Fiddler's roommate found the baby, Maggie Trammel, dead inside the washer of their Bartlesville home last week. Fiddler told authorities she did not know how her daughter ended up there.
Her roommate told authorities she checked the washer when she couldn't find the baby and had trouble waking Fiddler.
Court documents say Fiddler tested positive for methamphetamine, amphetamines, benzodiazepine and opiates.
Fiddler is being held on $100,000 bond.
