LOUISA COUNTY, Va. -

A mother has been charged in the death of her six-month-old child.

Tristan Goodwin faces involuntary manslaughter and child abuse charges. Police say back in March, Goodwin's baby was found not breathing at a home on Roundabout Road in Louisa County, Virginia.

The original cause of death was believed to be sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Following lab results, a lethal dose of Benadryl and high levels of Tylenol were found in the baby's system.

A grand jury indicted Goodwin in November. She was located last week.

She is now in the Central Virginia Regional Jail without bond.
