Today’s SMH comes from Humboldt County, CA where mother, Maggie Jean Wortman, killed her son with meth-laced breast milk. Wortman recently plead guilty for voluntary manslaughter and has now been sentenced.
Wortman’s son, Michael Acosta III, was 6-weeks-old when he died. The autopsy that was taken Nov. of 2010 found the death was caused by methamphetamine toxicity. Wortman most likely knew what harm would be done by breast feeding after using the drug.
Wortman was sentenced 6 years in prison. I definitely have to shake my head at Wortman for killing her 6-week-old son!
