LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Carroll County, Ky. mother is now in jail after the death of her 2-year-old son.

Police arrested 28-year-old Amanda Foster Tuesday and charged her with criminal abuse and transfer of a controlled substance to a minor.

The father of the child, Douglas Allen, had already been charged with murder in the case.
 
Police say Foster called 911 in February, saying her child had been found dead in his bed. A toxicology report showed the boy had high levels of oxycodone in his system.
 
Police believe Allen gave his son drugs, which led to the boy's death.
