JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Janesville police say a mother is in custody for the death of her 1-year-old child who died from a drug overdose.
Tallie Strommen, 23, of Beloit was arrested Tuesday. She's being held in the Rock County Jail.
WKOW-TV reports autopsy and toxicology tests completed last week showed the child died from an overdose of methadone. Detectives questioning the mother say she admitted giving the child part of a methadone pill before the child died Dec. 26 in Janesville.
Methadone is commonly used to treat heroin addiction.
