Spider plant help

We got a small spider plant about a month ago. I have watered it twice, and the soil feels a little moist about an inch down into soil. I have it about 18" from a north-facing window. Now why is it the plant seems to be dying? Leaves are turning yellow, then to dark brown and easy to pull from soil. Help.

It may have been overwatered. Is the soil well-draining? When it comes to spider plants you should water them well but do not allow the plants to become too soggy, which can lead to root rot. In fact, spider plants prefer to dry out some between waterings.
