Ind. couple charged in death of 6-month-old baby
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — The parents of a Bloomington infant who died last month face preliminary neglect charges after toxicology tests showed the child had an anti-anxiety drug in her system.
The Herald-Times reports the child's mother, 21-year-old Brenda Lynn Jay, and the baby's 31-year-old father, Joshua Aaron Lloyd, were arrested Thursday.
The couple is being held without bond at the Monroe County Jail on preliminary charges of neglect of a dependent resulting in death and possession of a controlled substance. Both are on probation for previous convictions.
Police says tests show that Wanda Evelynn Lloyd had five times the therapeutic dose of the anti-anxiety drug Ativan in her blood when she died. Investigators said the child had not been prescribed the drug and neither had her parents.
