DINWIDDIE, Va. (AP) -- A second woman faces a murder charge in the death of a newborn whose body was found in a toilet in Dinwiddie County.

Media outlets report that 41-year-old Angela Small was charged Thursday. She's the mother of 22-year-old Devin Monique Small, who was charged with first-degree murder a day earlier.

Devin Small was the mother of the newborn, who was found dead in the family's home Saturday morning.

Commonwealth's Attorney Lisa Caruso declined to elaborate on circumstances surrounding the child's death.

The Smalls are set to appear Nov. 19 in Dinwiddie Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.
