INFANT SUFFOCATED
Shinnston couple face child neglect charges after 3-month-old boy suffocates

CLARKSBURG, W.Va.


A Shinnston woman and her husband are charged in what authorities are calling the unintentional suffocation of her 3-month-old son.

The Exponent Telegram reports that 27-year-old Traci Brooke Moore McCoy and 32-year-old Clovis Harold McCoy are charged with child neglect resulting in death and child neglect creating a risk of serious injury or death. Harrison County Magistrate Tammy Marple set bond at $150,000 each at a hearing Friday.

According to authorities, the infant suffocated Tuesday while his mother was sleeping with him. The woman allegedly had taken two prescription drugs, one of which was given to her by her husband.

Harrison Sheriff's Lt. Pat McCarty says Clovis McCoy knew his wife was impaired when he left her alone with the baby and her twin sister, who was not harmed.
