MUNCIE, Ind. (21Alive) – A Muncie woman, already charged with murdering her 5-year old cousin, is now also charged with neglecting her siblings.

Charlene Tabb, 30, was charged Thursday with three counts of neglect of a dependent, according to The Muncie Star Press.

The report claims Tabb neglected her siblings between July 2012, and last June—around the same time her cousin died.

She is also charged with five counts of battery with a deadly weapon as she allegedly whipped her three siblings with an electrical cord.

Tabb's trial is set for December.
