An East Baton Rouge Parish woman is charged with first-degree murder in the drug-related death of her 18-month-old daughter.

Authorities say the 42-year-old Heather Hidalgo was already behind bars on outstanding bench warrants after she allegedly admitted giving methadone and other drugs to the toddler prior to her death in February.

Toxicology results indicated the drugs in the body of Isabelle Hidalgo would have proved fatal even to an adult.

Family members told investigators the child was born addicted to methadone.
