The incident occurred in September, according to KCCI . Authorities investigating the case say Taylor left the baby alone for an "extended period" and during that time, the baby rolled in such a way that her neck became compressed, blocking her airway, which caused her to suffocate.
Taylor's husband, Don Taylor, told KCCI that his wife is a good mother and only stepped away to get a bottle for the baby. He claims that his wife didn't know the baby could roll and that the incident was a terrible accident.
Police based their charges on months of testing and interviews.
