The Algoma woman who was arrested last week in connection to her seven-month-old child drowning in a bathtub has been charged with child neglect resulting in death.
According to the criminal complaint, 23-year-old Cheyanne Wierichs admitted to investigators that she left the bathroom with the baby in the bathtub to connect her phone to a Bluetooth speaker, returning after listening to a song when she heard splashing sounds. It was estimated that several minutes would have passed from the time Wierichs left and returned to the bathroom.
After authorities completed a search warrant, evidence of methamphetamine was gathered from the residence. Also charged with possessing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, Wierichs is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
