CHILD KILLED-CHARGES
Mother facing abuse, drug charges stemming from death of Kentucky toddler

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, April 2, 2014 10:18 AM EDT
GHENT, Ky.


A northern Kentucky mother has been charged with criminal abuse after her two-year-old son died from a drug overdose.

Kentucky State Police arrested 28-year-old Amanda Foster Tuesday at her home in Ghent.

Father Douglas Allen, also from Ghent, has been charged with murder in the case.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Bradley Arterburn says the 26-year-old father allegedly gave his son Oxycodone on the night of Feb. 18. The next morning, the mother called emergency services saying the child was discovered dead in his bed.

Arterburn says a toxicology report showed the boy had extremely high levels of Oxycodone in his system at the time of his death.

Foster was lodged at the Carroll County Detention Center.

Jail records did not list an attorney for her.
