A 1-month-old infant was found dead in a home over the summer. A Georgia couple is now faced with state criminal charges, including involuntary manslaughter, after authorities reportedly determined the baby suffocated while in their care. They have been charged with involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct.
Authorities were dispatched to the home back in June after the infant was found unconscious. According to reports, the baby died while sharing a bed with the couple. Upon further investigation, authorities allegedly discovered that both of them were high on meth and waited over half an hour to call for emergency help. An autopsy was performed and it was revealed that the infant died from asphyxia as a result of the sleep environment.
