WV woman in jail, indicted in the death of her baby
A woman is behind bars, charged with abuse that led to the death of her baby. Brittany Scott, 25, formerly of North Matewan, W.Va., is charged with child abuse resulting in death. The charge stems back to March 18, 2011. Mingo County Sheriff's Cpl. Norman Mines says that about 9 a.m. Scott left her 5-month-old child in his pack-and-play on the second floor. Scott told investigators she went to the first floor of her apartment in Magnolia Gardens, where she watched TV and napped with other children. It was 2:30 p.m. before she went to check on the baby again, and she found him unresponsive in a garbage bag. The case went straight to the Mingo County Grand Jury, where she was indicted last week.
