BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - A 4-year-old Bedford-Stuyvesant girl who was found dead in her apartment last week weighed only 18 pounds when she was found, according to prosecutors.

The child's mother, Carlotta Pierce, has been charged with assault, reckless endangerment, endangering the welfare of a child and a variety of drug charges.

Pierce was charged hours after the city medical examiner's office said further tests were needed to determine the cause of death of the 4-year-old.
