DANVILLE, Va. (AP) - A Danville woman has been charged in connection with the death of her 3-month-old child.

The Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that 24-year-old Amber Irvin was charged with felony child neglect in the infant’s death.

Deputies say investigators went to a hospital Tuesday in reference to the child being pronounced dead.

Officials haven’t released the cause of death and say the infant’s body has been sent to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Roanoke for an autopsy.

The case remains under investigation.

It’s unclear if Irvin has an attorney.
