ASHLAND (AP) — A 25-year-old Washburn woman has been charged with second-degree reckless homicide in the death of her 7-month-old daughter.
Tara N. Amraen was arrested Sept. 25 after her baby, Ciana Grace Hendricks-Amraen, drowned in a bathtub at the mother's home Sept. 10.
Bayfield County authorities said when charges were filed last Thursday that Amraen had put the infant in a baby chair and set it in the bathtub, along with a 2-year-old sibling. She then allegedly left the children in the tub and went to a friend's apartment in the same building to watch two performances on the TV program "America's Got Talent."
Amraen went back and found the 7-month-old unresponsive. The girl was pronounced dead at an Ashland hospital.
Amraen is free on bail.
