Mom Charged After Infant Dies From Co-Sleeping

A woman from Rogersville has been charged with endangering a child after her 28-day-old baby died while co-sleeping. 

Prosecutors say Brittany Hayes laid her baby down in an adult bed beside the baby’s father and went to take a bath. 

Court papers say she told investigators when she came back, the baby was face down on a pillow and later pronounced dead. 

Court papers say the state children’s division warned the couple not to sleep in the same bed as the baby.
