A Tulsa woman is in jail on complaints of child neglect after her 1-month-old baby died of cardiac arrest Saturday. 

Police say EMSA arrived at the home near N. Peoria and Apache Saturday night around 11 and pronounced the baby dead.

The mother, Denise Jones, told police that she had been sleeping most of the day and only checked on the sleeping baby a couple times but never picked the child up, changed it's diaper, or fed the baby.
