(CBS/AP) INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis mother is accused in the starvation death of her 2-month-old son who died Thursday weighing little more than 5 pounds and was described as mere "skin and bones."

Bambi Glazebrook, 29, faces preliminary charges of murder and neglect in the fatal starvation of her infant, Phillip Robey. She was held Tuesday at the Marion County Jail in Indianapolis.

Indianapolis metro police detective Tom Tudor said the child was sleeping in a drawer of an entertainment center that was "deplorable and unfit for human habitation."

Tudor said Glazebrook's 2-year-old child also showed signs of not thriving and that the Indiana Department of Child Services had removed two other children from her care.
