An Augusta mother who reported the sudden death of her 9-week-old baby this week was arrested after investigators found the woman’s home to be filthy.

While a death investigation is underway to determine why Gabrial Drew died Monday, investigators charged 22-year-old Annie Hyman with two counts of contributing to the deprivation of a minor, sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Carrier said.

Hyman told authorities she attempted to wake Gabrial but found her to be deceased. While at the home at 539 1/2 Wrights Avenue, officers found open food containers, animal feces and urine as well as a bucket with human feces and urine in the dining room.

Hyman was living at the home with the baby and her 4-year-old son. Sgt. Carrier said an autopsy has been performed, but they are waiting on additional test results to determine the cause of the baby’s death.

DFACS was called to the home to handle custody of the son. Hyman remains in jail today under a $25,000 bond.
