Addicted Mother Charged with Murder   PDF  Print  Email 

The State of Georgia is charging a woman for allegedly causing the death of her baby by taking drugs while pregnant. She faces murder charges, after one of her twins died shortly after birth, which prosecutors say was directly attributed to her use of cocaine and amphetamines while pregnant.

This is believed to be the first case of its kind to be prosecuted in Georgia. The woman's lawyer plans to get a dismissal on the murder charges on the argument that Georgia law does not allow it.
