A 3-year-old climbed into the washing machine and died. Then, her mother was arrested.

A Sunday afternoon in October, while her mother — who was using prescription tranquilizers — was napping in their Arkansas home, 3-year-old Alexis Haney climbed into the washing machine and closed the lid. The young children in the home told police they were used to helping with the laundry. The washing machine, which the family used as a dirty clothes hamper, was programmed to switch on when the lid closed. After the clothes were clean, one child would climb into the open machine and pass them to another, who would then toss them into the dryer. When Alexis closed the lid, hot water started to pour in. Authorities said she died from “scaling and thermal injuries,” according to a probable cause affidavit filed earlier this week in Calhoun County Circuit Court.
