A 40-year-old Ingersoll woman charged with second-degree murder in the death of a five-month-old is to appear in a Woodstock courtroom Tuesday.

Melissa Garland was originally charged with failing to provide the necessities of life in August 2010 after Brookelyn Hopkins was rushed to hospital.

The infant later died of unspecified injuries August 9th.

Police allege Garland was caring for the child at the time of the incident.
