WINFIELD, W.Va. -- A Putnam County woman has been charged with failing to get the proper treatment for her 3-year-old daughter, a cystic fibrosis patient who died last month.
Tracy Wright, 28, of Hurricane, was charged Thursday with child neglect resulting in death, WSAZ-TV reported.
A criminal complaint in Putnam County Magistrate Court alleges Wright refused to get help for the girl, who died on Dec. 29.
The complaint says the girl routinely missed doctor's appointments. Detectives found prescriptions that were expired, unopened and unfilled.
Wright was held on $50,000 bond at the Western Regional Jail. Jail records didn't indicate whether she had an attorney.
