Baby Poisoning
(2008-02-27)
(wgvu) - MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) - An 18-year-old from Muskegon Heights is
charged with trying to poison her baby.
Police tell WZZM-TV that Shatara Jones tried to make the
1-year-old drink bleach and cleanser.
Authorities tell The Muskegon Chronicle that the child's
grandmother twice saved the baby from harm and called police. Jones
and the infant live with the grandmother. Jones' boyfriend is the
baby's father.
Muskegon Heights Detective Steve White says the young mother had
some "depression issues," but added the motive for her alleged
actions was unclear.
Efforts to reach Jones for comment were unsuccessful Wednesday
morning.
Jones was arraigned Friday on a charge of poisoning, which is a
15-year felony.
A preliminary examination is set for March 6.
