Police: Woman was passed out on drugs when infant son died

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Police have arrested a northern Colorado woman whose infant son died while investigators say she was passed out from drug use for 18 hours on her birthday.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports  28-year-old Mandi Woodall was arrested Thursday and is being held in the Larimer County jail.

Investigators say she told them she took a two-hour nap with the 3-month-old boy Tuesday, and he was unresponsive when she awoke. But authorities believe she had been sleeping for nearly an entire day and that drugs played a role.

They have not said how the boy died. Two other children at the home were uninjured but showed signs of neglect.

Booking documents do not indicate if Woodall has hired an attorney.
