Cocaine In Breast Milk Caused Death, Prosecutors Say

May 19, 2006

WEST BRANCH, Mich. -- A Michigan woman is charged with involuntary manslaughter after prosecutors say her 5-month-old daughter died from drinking breast milk containing cocaine.

Sara Shelby was arraigned Thursday. If convicted, she faces up to 15 years in prison.
