A Lafayette Parish grand jury has indicted a local woman in connection with the death of her five-month-old baby.
Jeanette Monay, 26, was indicted on one count negligent homicide and three counts child desertion.
Monay was arrested earlier this month after her baby died at a local hospital.
Police allege that Jeanette Levy left her five-month-old twins, her two-year-old and her four-year-old alone in their Hebert Road home while she went to “run errands.”
The five-month-old was rushed to the hospital later that day and pronounced dead, police say.
