The Weber County Sheriff’s Office arrested the 31-year-old more than a month after she called 911 from her Marriot-Slaterville apartment to report that her daughter, who has cerebral palsy, was unresponsive, the station reports.

After the girl, then three years old, was taken to the hospital, doctors found a large amount of alcohol in the girl’s system, Weber County sheriff’s Lt. Doug Coleman told KUTV.

The girl, now 4, is not able to walk or talk and requires a feeding tube. Borce was booked into the Weber County Jail on Wednesday and was released on bond later that day, according to KUTV.

As of Friday, no charges had been filed against Borce, who has no prior criminal record in Utah.

KUTV reports that Borce’s two children have been temporarily taken from her custody by the Division of Child and Family Services. The 4-year-old girl has been placed in her father’s custody.
