Police say a cable technician found the young girl crying outside the apartment complex Tuesday morning. She told him her mother was sick and wouldn't wake up.

Authorities say 24-year-old Niemeka White had apparently been ill and could have been dead for nearly two days. Toxicology tests will help determine what caused the young mother's death.

The girl and her six-month-old brother have been turned over to a relative.
