Infant Killed After Mother Fed Him Drugs Through Breastmilk

This is a really disturbing news. While all the rest of the mothers are doing their best to protect and feed their baby, here’s one who did something unimaginable.

The 11-month-old baby named R.J. died after his mother Samantha Jones, 30, fed him her drug-laced breast milk.
She was charged on Friday for criminal homicide after the baby’s autopsy revealed that he had died due to cardiac arrest after ingesting a mix of methadone, amphetamine, and metamphetamine in the mom’s milk.

According to reports, Jones had been prescribed methadone to help her with her addiction to painkillers. She also stated that she was taking it during her pregnancy and at the time of the baby’s death.

Jones had been feeding the child formula since he wasn’t getting enough milk from breastfeeding. But on the morning that the child died, the baby was crying at 3 in the morning.Instead of getting the infant formula, the mother decided to breastfeed the child as she was too tired to prepare a bottle of formula…
