Authorities say a Grand Rapids-area infant died after not being fed for two days and left in an apartment with no air conditioning.

Court records say 22-year-old Lovily Kristine-Anwonette Johnson of Wyoming was charged Monday with first-degree murder and first-degree child abuse in the death of 6-month-old Noah Johnson.

An affidavit says Johnson took the already dead child to a hospital on Wednesday afternoon. She was arrested that day.

Wyoming Police Officer Robert Meredith wrote in an affidavit that Johnson said the infant remained buckled in a car seat on the upper floor of Johnson's apartment with no air conditioning and that she had not fed him since the prior Monday evening.

MLive reports a not guilty plea was entered for Johnson during her arraignment. She was denied bond.
