A Columbia County mom is charged with manslaughter, accused of causing the death of her child.

Sareese Stewart, 30, was arrested Tuesday in connection with the death of her 21-month-old child back in June.

Police responded to the home on Ten Broeck Lane in the town of Greenport for an unresponsive child.

The child died at Columbia Memorial Hospital.

State police won't say how the child died, but they say Stewart recklessly caused the child's death.
