SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Two Utah County parents have been charged with child endangerment after their 1-year-old daughter died from ingesting enough heroin to kill an adult.

Court records show 31-year-old Casey Cormani and 32-year-old Cassandra Richards also face misdemeanor drug charges.

Cormani and Richards were arrested last week. They do not yet have listed attorneys to comment on their behalf.

Their daughter Penny died on Dec. 2. Provo Police have not said how the girl ingested heroin but a toxicology report shows the drug was the cause of her death.

Cormani and Richards are scheduled to make their first court appearances on Thursday.
