SEATTLE —

A woman accused of neglecting two young daughters in a car on the Tulalip Indian Reservation had a not guilty plea entered for her Thursday if federal court in Seattle.

Christina Carlson was indicted earlier this month on murder and criminal mistreatment charges.

The Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/18lE1H2) the 37-year-old Tulalip woman faces a 30-year sentence if she is convicted.

Carlson's 19-month-old old daughter Chantel Craig died in October of dehydration and malnutrition. She was found in filthy conditions in a car with her 3-year-old sister who also suffered from malnutrition but survived.

Court papers say in the hours before they were found Carlson was sending text messages attempting to buy drugs.
