A mother is charged with two felonies after her son died while in bed with her, marking the second time a suspect’s child has died in three years.

Aaliyah Lykins of Muncie, Indiana, faces charges of reckless homicide and neglect of a dependent, according to court records reviewed by PEOPLE.

Lykins was breastfeeding her newborn baby in bed on Oct. 9, 2023, when she allegedly fell asleep and woke up to her 2-week-old daughter in cardiac arrest, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by Fox59, McClatchy News and The star press.

When first responders arrived, the baby was reportedly not breathing and was pronounced dead shortly after at a local hospital, the affidavit states.

“Aaliyah Lykins was fully aware of the danger of sleeping with her baby… as a previous child died in her sleep,” police wrote in the affidavit, McClatchy News reports.

The baby’s death came about two years after the death of Lykins’ 2-month-old son while co-sleeping, according to court records obtained by McClatchy News.

“Oh no, I did it again,” Lykins told EMS personnel, according to the affidavit.

Charges were never filed against Lykins in 2020, but according to the affidavit, Lykins told officers at the time “that he shouldn’t have slept with (his son) and that he knew it was wrong.”
