The mother of a Pulaski County infant who was found dead in January has been indicted on a felony child neglect charge.
Samantha Anna-Jane Taylor, who also goes by Samantha Warden, was indicted Monday by a grand jury in Pulaski County.
Five-month-old Cory Cole was found in a shallow grave in January. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against the baby’s father, Howard Cole.
The neglect charge against Taylor stems from her leaving the child alone with Cole. There was a court order stating that Taylor was to always have the child within her sight when around the baby’s father.
Taylor is due back in court at 9:30 a.m. July 25.
