Kid died as mother took drugs

The Observer - - NEWS WORLD -

A TOD­DLER in­jured her­self fa­tally while her mother took drugs, pros­e­cu­tors in the US state of New Jersey have al­leged. Deanna Joseph, 39, was in the front of her car as her two-year-old daugh­ter sat in the back. "It ap­peared the child was con­fined in a car seat ... and may have in­jured her­self," the pros­e­cu­tor said. Af­ter notic­ing her daugh­ter was un­re­spon­sive, Joseph called an am­bu­lance. The cause of death is yet to be de­ter­mined. Joseph was jailed for a year in 2014 af­ter be­ing found un­re­spon­sive in an apart­ment while her in­fant son bathed in wa­ter nearby.
