The grandmother is said to have called 911 around 15 minutes after leaving the casino, the affidavit states. Orr told authorities that her grandson had choked and was not breathing. 

Harrah police met with the woman at the police department and attempted to resuscitate the child. Rigor mortis had already begun, police noted.  

A federal grand jury in Indian County found that Orr - who is a member of the Kickapoo Tribe - caused the death of the child by willfully failing to provide adequate shelter and supervision while she was watching over the child. 

Because the defendant and the victim are Native Americans and the offense took place on tribal trust land, the case was subject to federal jurisdiction.
