NEWNAN, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say an infant found dead in her mother’s bed in Coweta County had methamphetamine in her system.

Coweta County Sherriff Mike Yeager tells local media outlets that all three of 22-year-old Jazmen Hazelrigs’ children - her deceased 4-month-old girl, her 2-year-old daughter and her 4-year-old son - tested positive for the drug last week.

Hazelrigs is charged with three counts of felony child cruelty and possession of methamphetamine, but could face more charges if investigators determine the drugs caused the baby’s death.

Authorities were called Sept. 7 to Hazelrigs’ Newnan home after the infant, Harmony B. Hazelrigs, was found unresponsive.

Yeager says Hazelrigs’s two surviving children have been placed in foster homes. It is unclear whether Hazelrigs has an attorney.
