A 29-year-old woman is accused of neglecting her three-month-old daughter after she fell off a bed and suffered a head injury, Collier County Deputies said.

Kira Pickett told deputies that her baby fell of the bed while they were sleeping and Pickett did not seek medical attention until hours later. 

The infant had swelling and bruising on her head, CCSO said.

Pickett and her mother were later tested positive for multiple controlled substances. 

She was arrested and charged for child neglect. 

The infant along with Pickett's 5-year-old son is in the care of DCF.
