Mojica was charged with involuntary manslaughter and child abuse with a special allegation of willful harm or injury resulting in death.

She was arraigned Monday, and prosecutors say she was given no bail, meaning she cannot post bond.

If convicted, Mojica faces ten years in state prison.

Four other people in the house were also charged Monday with child endangerment and drug crimes.
