Baby died from drug overdose after drinking mother's breast milk

Samantha Jones, 30, is in jail on $3 million bond.

A Philadelphia-area woman who described herself as a drug addict is being held on a homicide charge after she allegedly transmitted drugs to her 11-week-old baby through her breast milk, officials said.

Jones is being charged with criminal homicide in connection with her son's death.

Jones told police that she was too exhausted to prepare formula for the baby on the day the child died, according to a probably cause affidavit obtained by The Morning Call.

The baby was lying in his bassinet, pale and not breathing with "bloody mucous coming out of his nose", according to the affidavit. She and her mother, who was also in the house at the time, called 911 and began CPR. New Britain Township Police and Bucks County Detectives believe the fatal drugs entered the baby's body through the mother's breast milk. She said that she had taken it during her pregnancy, and that she was taking it when her baby, R.J., died.

Jones said she was taking the methadone prescription while she was pregnant.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Jones told police she had been prescribed methadone because of a painkiller addiction.

Louis Busico, the lawyer representing Jones, could not be reached for comment.

Other parents have faced charges over drug-laced breastmilk in recent years. He rushed by an ambulance to Doylestown Hospital and was pronounced dead at 8:29 in the emergency room. "Adverse effects of drugs on the breastfed infant have been reported for several drugs of abuse including amphetamine, heroin, methadone, cocaine, and PCP", Alan says. The physician who conducted the autopsy believes the baby ingested the drugs through the breast milk.

In 2002, California mother Amy Prien was charged with second-degree murder after the coroner's office confirmed that her 3-month-old son overdosed on methamphetamine, which entered his system through breast milk.

Police said the child's father told them he found Jones and the baby in separate bedrooms about 6 a.m. on April 2.

A preliminary hearing for Jones has been scheduled for July 23, according to court records.
