TULSA -- A charge was filed Wednesday against a woman after her baby died in March after being found face-down in a mop bucket containing water.

A charge of child neglect was filed against Heather Freeman. An arrest warrant has been issued for her.

Police say they were called to the Sandy Park Apartments, where the mother of the child told police she gave her baby boy a bottle, place him in a bed next to her and fell asleep.

When she woke up, the woman says she found the baby face-down in a mop bucket containing water.

The baby, an eight-month-old, was transported to the hospital where he died.
