Authorities are investigating what led to the death of a 9-week-old baby Monday.

According to Richmond Coun­ty sheriff's Lt. Calvin Chew, deputies arrived at the infant's home in the 500 block of Wrights Avenue to find the infant, Gabrial Drew, and her 3-year-old sibling had been living in unfit conditions. The home has roaches, dog feces and urine, and moldy food, Chew said. The report indicated there was also a bucket of human feces.

The children's mother, Annie R. Hyman, 22, was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of deprivation of a minor. Bond has been set at $25,000.

Autopsy results on Gabrial were inconclusive, according to Richmond County Coroner Grover Tuten, and toxicology and histology results are pending.
