LAWTON, Ok (RNN Texoma) -

A Lawton woman is facing a Child Neglect charge after leaving her infant child alone in an apartment.

Police say on June 1 they had to force their way into 31-year-old Kimberly Prout's apartment on reports that she was attempting to let her child suffocate.

They say they found the baby face down between two pillows and under a blanket in Prout's room. The baby was in good health, but alone in the apartment, and Prout was arrested when she got home about 3 hours later.

Prout is expected to appear in court next month and could face life in prison if convicted.

    Beyond their war of words, the row touched on several sensitive issues in Trump's White House, including a lack of racial diversity, security in the executive mansion and a culture that some there feel borders on paranoia.
