SEYMOUR, Tenn. (WKYT) - Authorities in Tennessee say a woman is behind bars accused of neglecting her small children who were found unresponsive in a bathtub, and one child is dead.
Bethanie Carricker, 34, of Seymour, is charged with two counts of aggravated child abuse by neglect.
Carricker's 15-month-old daughter was pronounced dead at a hospital while her 20-day-old newborn daughter is in critical condition.
Deputies responded to Carricker's home Tuesday afternoon after receiving a call about the small children.
Carricker is being held on a $1 million bond. She is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday afternoon.
