    Woman seeks court-appointed attorney.

    A 32-year-old Houston woman is jailed on a charge of endangering a child after authorities found both her and her year-old daughter drunk.

    Lashwanda Allen asked a Harris County judge Thursday for a court-appointed lawyer.

    Court documents show emergency crews were summoned Feb. 21 after a roommate found her wandering around her apartment complex and her 4-month-old daughter hanging upside-down on the bed, tangled in sheets and turning blue.

    Her year-old daughter had been retrieved by a neighbor near a parking lot outside. Test showed the older child was legally drunk.

    Allen told officers she was drinking an alcoholic energy drink, fell asleep and awoke to see the older daughter holding the empty can.

    Allen said she went outside to talk to a neighbor and left the children inside alone.
