The baby’s grandmother — 44-year-old Toni Lynn Camia — told officers that she took a bath with 5-month-old Angel Stanford, according to police. Camia said she fell asleep and when she woke up the baby was not breathing.

The infant was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead, according to police.

An autopsy showed the primary cause of death was a probably drowning and a contributory cause of death was acute methamphetamine intoxication, according to police.

Last week, a grand jury indicted Camia on a charge of aggravated child abuse/neglect/endangerment and first-degree murder.

She was already in jail on unrelated charges when the new counts were issued. Her bail was set at $300,000.
