Posted: Updated:

A Lebanon, Tennessee woman is charged in the death of her 3-year-old daughter.

Monday the Van Buren County grand jury indicted twenty-two year old Samantha Brymer-Armstrong on one count of child abuse of a child under eight years old and one count of child neglect of a child under eight years old.

On March 7, 2013, Brymer-Armstrong's daughter, Kayleigh Armstrong was found in a swimming pool at their residence on Old State Highway in Spencer, Tennessee not breathing.

CPR was performed and Kayleigh was transported to the White County Hospital where hospital staff were able to regain a pulse and labored breathing.

She was then transported to Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga where she died the next day.

Brymer-Armstrong told investigators that she left Kayleigh unattended for more than an hour while she played video games with headphones on in the back bedroom.

Brymer-Armstrong was booked into the Van Buren County Jail on $25,000 bond.
