The Attorney General's office says a Milton woman has been indicted on charges for allegedly giving drugs to her 17-year-old daughter, who died of an overdose.

Forty-six-year-old Leslie Laughlin is charged with endangering the welfare of a child and other offenses in the Dec. 5 indictment. She was released on $5,000 unsecured bail.

Authorities say on July 15, Laughlin's daughter died from a drug overdose. Officials say an investigation showed Laughlin had given the teenager drugs that had been prescribed to Laughlin.
