WHITEWATER TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

The grandmother who overdosed while in a bathtub with her grandson, who later died, was arraigned Thursday.

Kathy Huff, 42, was arraigned on child endangerment and involuntary manslaughter.  She pleaded not guilty to both charges. 

Huff had previously been indicted on Oct. 7 on one count child endangering.  The charges will now be merged, according to Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters. 

Emergency crews responded to the residence in the 5100 block of State Route 128 in Whitewater Township on Oct. 3. First responders found Huff unresponsive in the bathtub and 4-month-old Killian Huff not breathing, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. 

A first responder described Killian as grey, naked, wet and lifeless, according to court documents.

Whitewater Township EMS started the life saving process on the infant and Huff was administered Naloxone. 

Killian later died after being in critical condition for two weeks at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. 

Huff admitted to snorting heroin while babysitting her grandson, court records show. 

If convicted of all charges, she faces the possibility of 11 years in prison, Deters said.

Huff is being held on $500,000 bond.
