An Indianapolis woman faces charges in connection with the starvation death of a 2-month-old son who weighed just 5½ pounds and whom a detective described as mere "skin and bones."

Court records say Phillip Robey died Thursday, weeks after a family acquaintance urged her to get him medical help. He was sleeping in a drawer of an entertainment center in a home that Indianapolis metro police Detective Tom Tudor described as "deplorable and unfit for human habitation."

Twenty-nine-year-old Bambi Glazebrook faces preliminary charges of murder and neglect. She was being held Tuesday at the Marion County Jail in Indianapolis.

Tudor says a 2-year-old child of Glazebrook also showed signs of not thriving and that the Indiana Department of Child Services had removed two other children from her care.
