FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Fargo woman is accused of exposing her 1-year-old child to methamphetamine.

A police report says Amber Marie Helps was keeping the child in a filthy apartment with rotting food and sacks of garbage.

Tests on the youngster's hair showed both she and Helps had been exposed to meth.

The Forum newspaper reports Wednesday that Helps has been charged with child neglect and abuse. The felony charge carries a possible five-year prison term.

The police report says Helps' apartment also had exposed electrical wires that would be dangerous to a curious child.
