On April 18, the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia announced charges against Sydnei Moran Doran, 24, and Marquis Simon Colvin, 25.

On April 13, deputies responded to a hospital after the infant was brought in for care, according to the sheriff’s office. Hospital staff said the circumstances around the child’s death did not make sense and police should investigate.

Offices spoke to the two parents and Dunn said she drank a large quantity of alcohol the day before and the child must have gotten it through breastfeeding, according to the sheriff’s office.


She then told police that the child’s father put alcohol in the baby’s bottle. Dunn said they took the baby to the hospital after the child became unresponsive, the sheriff’s office noted.

Police searched the couple’s home and found evidence and a gun. Colvin is a convicted felon and not allowed to be in close proximity to a gun, according to the sheriff’s office.

The child died the day after being brought to the hospital. Doctors determined the child had a blood alcohol content more than four times the .08 legal driving limit for an adult.

The two were both charged with several counts, including malice murder. They are being held in jail without bond.
