ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A judge has revoked the bond of a Roanoke woman who was charged with involuntary manslaughter in her infant daughter’s drowning death after he says she violated restrictions.

The Roanoke Times (https://bit.ly/1LIRMCf) reports 25-year-old Brittany Elizabeth Underwood was returned to jail early Wednesday after being freed in April on $1,000 bail. She was indicted in March in the death of her 8-month-old daughter, Charlie. Police say rescue crews found the baby unresponsive in a bathtub at home January 10. Underwood admitted to using heroin at the time of the baby’s death.

An attorney says Underwood violated the conditions of her bond by visiting her husband, 35-year-old Robert Earl Underwood, in May.

Robert Underwood has not been charged in the death of his daughter. He is jailed on unrelated charges.
