VIRGINIA BEACH -- The mother of a 13-month-old who died last November has been arrested, Virginia Beach Police said Friday.

Police charged 23-year-old Amanda Louise Barrington with one count of felony child neglect.

Police and forensics responded to the 200 block of Birch Lake Road on November 26, 2012 around 9:30 a.m. after receiving a report of a deceased infant.

In November, the baby's grandmother described the death as 'unexpected,' explaining to 13News that the baby was put down for a nap but never woke up.

Police have not released a cause of death.

Barrington is being held in the Virginia Beach Correctional Center without bond.

This case remains under investigation.
