LAWRENCEBURG, TN (WSMV) -

A Lawrence County mother was arrested Friday in connection with the death of her 3-month-old daughter last year.

Chassidy Jade Garland, 25, of Lawrenceburg is charged with reckless homicide.

On, Nov. 1, 2012 investigators were called to a home regarding an infant that had passed away.

When they arrived, investigators said they "quickly noticed evidence that led them to believe this was more than an unexplained death."

Authorities said there was drug activity at the home and witness statements contradicted those of Garland's.

Investigators said there was an attempt to destroy and hide and evidence.

Garland was released from jail after posting a $10,000 bond. She is scheduled to appear in court on July 8.
