A mother accused of killing her baby daughter by rubbing heroin on her gums to get her to sleep has told critics to 'rot in hell' in a foul-mouthed video rant posted online.
Kimberly Nelligan, 33, is said to have used the substance on one-year-old Jordy at least 15 times before the infant died in October 2018, according to court papers.
The little girl was found dead at her home in Bangor, Maine, by emergency responders and Nelligan was arrested on Monday, charged with child endangerment and drug possession.

On Wednesday, Nelligan gave the finger to reporters and repeatedly swore during a foul-tempered court appearance.
An expletive-ridden video then emerged on social media which shows her blasting her accusers and vowing to clear her name in court.
In the explosive tirade, she claims she is being set up by the baby's father Shane Smith - who has given evidence against her - and insists she 'did nothing at all'.
Glaring at the camera, Nelligan says: 'All you scumbag b**** m************ who have no idea what even happened, you guys are all listening to what is said in the newspaper because that's what was said from her (Jordy's) own father.
'Her father decided he was gonna say - to get himself out of this s*** - that: "Oh, yeah. I think Kim rubbed it on her gums."
'Okay, if you guys think that really happened - and this happened a year ago - I'm not even charged with her death, I'm charged with allowing somebody that was using drugs around her, endangering welfare of a child.
'Shane Smith is the one who was smoking fentanyl. I don't give a f*** if any of you believe me, I could care less.
