ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Two Albuquerque women face child abuse charges after authorities say a 3-year-old girl suffering from hypothermia was found face down in a tub of cold water.

The suspects - 49-year-old Adelle Rigbsy and 18-year-old Tiffany Desvigne - have been arrested, and The Albuquerque Journal reported Saturday they are each being held on a $25,000 cash-only bond.

The girl was taken to a hospital where she was treated for hypothermia on Jan. 29 after authorities found her in the bathtub.

According to a criminal complaint, Devisgne told police the girl and her brother had been placed in cold water before as punishment.

The criminal complaint states Children, Youth and Families Department investigated the home in November.

The girl is now in CYFD custody.
