A Texas mom and two other people are facing felony charges after her infant daughter was found with injection marks and later tested positive for heroin, authorities said Thursday.

Two-month-old Brixlee Marie Lee was rushed to the hospital Saturday morning after she became unresponsive at a home in San Angelo, according to the city’s police department. Hospital staff told investigators they found multiple injection marks on the baby’s extremities and head and detected heroin in her system.

Her mother, grandmother and the grandmother’s boyfriend were taken into custody and charged with first-degree felony injury to a child.

Police said they found a small quantity of heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana and pills while searching the property this week.

They also learned that the infant’s mother, 21-year-old mother, Destiney Harbour, gave birth at home in late August but never sought formal medical care for the child, according to a news release.
