"My son got a text from a friend of his saying that my grandson had got ahold of some meth," Floria alleged to the station.

Jasmin Jones-Bronner, the child’s aunt, had custody of Cain, who turned 1 a month before his death, FOX 2 reported.

While Jones-Bronner was at a work party, her boyfriend, Timothy Coombs, allegedly gave meth to Cain at a residence in Flint, according to FOX 2.

Cain was transported to an area hospital and put on life support, but he died 10 days later, on Dec. 29.
