A Dane County Medical Examiner determined a 1-year-old child had lethal levels of methadone in her blood when she died.

According to a Rock County criminal complaint, K'myah Strommen died on Dec. 26 due to the levels that would be lethal for a small child.

Tallie Strommen, 23, of Beloit, has been charged with first degree reckless homicide in the death of her daughter, K'myah.

Strommen reportedly bit off a piece of a methadone pill and gave it to her daughter to help her get to sleep, according to the criminal complaint. Strommen and her daughter were staying at a friend's residence in Janesville when the child died. Strommen reportedly told police she did not have a prescription for methadone, but received two methadone pills from a third party on Christmas.

Strommen was in Rock County Jail Court today, Wednesday, Feb. 12 and her next hearing will be at 2 p.m. Feb. 21. She is being held on $20,000 bond.
