MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin woman is charged with felony child neglect in the death of her 2-year-old daughter who allegedly drank gasoline.

Thirty-five-year-old Connie Hartmann of Medina also is charged with felony child neglect resulting in great bodily harm to the girl's 4-year-old brother.

The Dane County sheriff's office says Hartmann was taken to jail Thursday after she was arrested for a domestic incident at her home.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports sheriff's deputies went to Hartmann's home last May after her 2-year-old daughter was found unconscious in a car and her 4-year-old son was ill. The girl later died at a hospital.

The boy told a doctor he and his sister locked themselves in the car and drank gasoline.

Online court records do not indicate a defense attorney for Hartmann.
