An autopsy will be performed on a 2-year-old Apple Valley girl who died after ingesting chili powder, authorities said.
Meantime, a 21-year-old woman who was arrested on suspicion of child abuse resulting in death is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday. Amanda Sorenson was arrested early Monday and was being held on $500,000 bail.
San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies were called to the 20000 block of Cayuga Road at 4:16 p.m. Sunday in response to a report of a child suffering from a seizure after ingesting chili powder. The girl was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The autopsy will determine the cause of death, officials said.
A sheriff’s spokeswoman said Sorensen is the girlfriend of the child’s father, KTLA-TV reported.
