APPLETON, Wis. (AP) - An Appleton woman has been arrested in the death of her infant daughter.

Police say the 26-year-old woman was taken into custody Friday on a possible charge of second-degree reckless homicide.

Investigators say the mother was intoxicated when she crawled into a bed with her three-month-old daughter in August of 2015. An autopsy showed the infant was asphyxiated.

The woman is being held in the Outagamie County Jail.
