CADIZ, Ky. (AP) — Police say a western Kentucky woman has been charged with murder in the death of her infant son.
News outlets cited a statement from Kentucky State Police in reporting that a Trigg County grand jury handed down an indictment Friday for 28-year-old Shaylynn Curtis.
Police said the charge came after detectives presented a medical examiner’s report to the panel showing the 5-month-old boy died Oct. 25 of acute methamphetamine intoxication. They did not say how the baby ingested the drug. Curtis was being held at the Christian County jail.
