BALTIMORE, Md. (AP/WBOC)- A Baltimore woman is accused of killing her year-old grandson by poisoning him with methadone.

Police say 50-year-old Towanda Reaves has been charged with second-degree murder, child abuse resulting in death, assault and other crimes stemming from the July death of the child. She was arrested at her home Thursday evening.

Police say Reaves admitted rubbing methadone on the gums of that child as well as his infant sibling, who was admitted that same day to the pediatric intensive care unit of Sinai Hospital.

Authorities say Reaves also turned over an empty bottle of methadone to the hospital staff.

It wasn't immediately clear if Reaves has a lawyer.

Court records show a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 29.
