An infant died from a meth overdose and now two parents face charges, police said.
On March 19, the Ellis County Sheriff’s Department in Texas responded to a home for an infant who was not breathing. Police arrived and saw the girl being loaded into an ambulance.
The child was taken to the hospital and was pronounced dead around 11:15 a.m., according to the sheriff’s office.
The victim’s parents were identified as Heather Williams and Shawn Lankford.
An autopsy showed the child died from the toxic effects of meth in an unsafe sleeping environment, according to the sheriff’s office.
Both parents were charged with murder this week. They are being held in jail on $1 million bond.
