CARTHAGE (AP) - Authorities say a northern New York woman has been charged in connection with the death of a 6-month-old girl.
State police say 25-year-old Amber Simpson of the Jefferson County village of Carthage has been charged Wednesday with second-degree manslaughter.
The child's name, details of her death and her relation to Simpson haven't been released by state police.
Simpson was arraigned in the Village of Carthage Court and sent to the county jail, where she's being held on $30,000 cash bail. It couldn't be determined if she had a lawyer.
Carthage is located near Fort Drum.
