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