Police were summoned to the couple's home where they found the living room and baby's play pen littered with dog feces.
The 10-month-old girl unresponsive.
The arrest was reported in Oklahoma City.
According to police, Warden said after the first hospital visit, she brought the baby home and the child "wouldn't wake up" so she called the ambulance.
EMSA took the baby to the hospital and officers called a DHS worker to the scene.
During this time, police say neither the mother nor her boyfriend came outside to see where the baby was taken.
When the DHS worker interviewed Franklin, he was unable to stay awake, according to police.
Officers noticed dog feces throughout the living room and inside the baby's play pen along with a pizza crust.
Warden told police that her sister is on a number of prescriptions and she suspected the baby had taken some. Police did not find the medications.
Police say at the hospital, the baby was given Narcan, a medication to reverse the effects of overdose. Doctors said her temperature was very low and they placed her in a warming bed. They said she had an altered mental state, hypothermia and was suffering from a possible drug overdose. She was then placed on a ventilator to help her breathe.
Eventually hospital staff told police that both Warden and Franklin showed up to the hospital and were causing a scene in the waiting room, according to the police report. Police ran their names and arrested them in the ER waiting room for prior warrants.
Doctors later called police to tell them they talked to Franklin who said he had been prostituting Warden and had given the baby K2 "to get rid of it," according to the police report.
Warden and Franklin are both facing charges of child neglect.
