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.
