When the baby was hospitalized in January, medical staff diagnosed the 10-month-old baby girl as having an altered mental status, hypothermia, and a probable drug overdose. She was placed in a warming bed, put on a ventilator, and given Narcan to help counter the drugs in her system.

The child was expected to make a full recovery, police said.
