PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix woman is in custody on allegations that she injected her 5-year-old daughter with methamphetamine and amphetamine.
    
Police say 30-year-old Jacqueline Trousdale is being held on suspicion of child abuse and endangering the life and health of a minor.
    
A family member called authorities in October, saying Trousdale was doing drugs in front of her two daughters, ages 5 and 6.
    
Authorities say the girls told police their mother had injected them with drugs, and state Child Protective Services took custody of the children.
    
Police say a urine sample from the 5-year-old girl last week came back positive for drugs in her system.
    
Trousdale was found in the Phoenix suburb of Tolleson and arrested.
    
She was arraigned on the charges Wednesday in a Tolleson court and does not yet have an attorney for the case.
