A 22-year-old Wabash woman has been charged with neglect of a dependent after a 6-week-old boy tested positive for heroin and morphine, Indiana State Police said today.

Emma Moore was served the arrest warrant Thursday at the Wabash County Jail, where she was being held on a previous arrest, state police at Peru said in a statement.

Police said they began an investigation Aug. 9 after receiving information from the Indiana Department of Child Services that the boy may have been neglected.
