NEW YORK (AP) — A Long Island woman has been arrested in connection with the death of a newborn baby found inside a Queens hotel room last summer.

Police said Wednesday that 36-year-old Lauren Becker, of Seaford, has been charged with manslaughter. Information on her lawyer wasn’t immediately available.

The female infant was found lying unconscious and unresponsive inside a room at a Days Inn in July. Becker was also in the hotel room. Both were taken to a hospital where the child was pronounced dead.
