ROGERSVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri mother whose baby died while sleeping in an adult bed is charged with child endangerment.

Thirty-two-year-old Brittany Hayes, of Rogersville, was arraigned Tuesday on the charge. She is free on bond. No attorney is listed for her in online court records.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that the probable cause statement says Hayes told police that she put the 28-year-old infant in bed with the baby’s sleeping father in May before going to take a bath. The statement says the infant was face down in a pillow when she got out of the bath. The baby was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The statement says Hayes and the baby’s father had been warned by the state Children’s Division to not sleep in the same bed as the baby.
