Police: Mother Charged with Homicide for Giving Toddler Fentanyl-Laced Drink

A Pennsylvania mother is facing homicide charges after she gave her 17-month-old daughter a drink containing fentanyl in a sippy cup, police said.

Authorities arrested Jhenea Pratt, 23, on Friday and charged her with one count of homicide and one count of endangering the welfare of a child when her daughter, Charlette Napper-Talley, died after drinking the tainted beverage out of her sippy cup, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

Police found the 17-month-old girl not breathing in Pratt’s Pittsburgh apartment in April, and discovered a pink sippy cup with red liquid on the toddler’s bed.
