A woman whose 24-week-old baby died in central Arkansas will face a murder charge, authorities say.

According to a news release from the Benton Police Department, detectives were called to Saline Memorial Hospital on June 5 to investigate the death.

During the investigation, authorities told the medical call had originated from a nearby motel. The release states that police believe Angela Miller injected methamphetamine at the motel before she gave birth.

She faces charges of introduction of a controlled substance into the body of another person and second-degree murder.

Police said the investigation is ongoing, and additional charges may be forthcoming.

Records show Miller, 23, remained at the Saline County jail as of Thursday night, and no bail had been set.
