Harris reportedly called 911 on Aug. 5 to say she woke up from a nap and found her daughter in her car not breathing. First responders were unable to revive the child. Officials did not say how the girl died.

Harris was arrested after detectives from the child abuse unit forwarded the case to the San Diego County District Attorney’s office after a “thorough investigation.”
