After reading the article, it seems obvious the mother should be charged with
negligent homicide rather than murder. She did a dumb thing in putting her
methadone in a Gatorade bottle. But it seems rather obvious she
didn't intend any harm to any of her children, as she apparently
didn't intend for any of them to have any of her methadone. It apparently
happened by accident. She undoubtedly is torn up over the death of her 2 year
old baby. To charge her with murder only makes the situation worse.Should she be held responsible and accountable? By all means. But there's
a huge difference between a premeditated murder of someone, and a negligent
homicide by accident.
Truly a sad case. Those poor kids. I hope the kids will be able to come to
peace with what has happened. May God be with them.
