South Carolina mother’s breast milk kills her baby


Stephanie Greene, 37, South Carolina, was charged on Friday, June 24, with homicide by child abuse.

Investigators said 6-week old daughter, Alexis, was found dead in her parents’ bed in their Campobello home in November 2010. Authorities in South Carolina say the infant girl died from a lethal dose of morphine that was in her mother’s breast milk. Painkillers got into Greene’s breast milk after she continuously took pills and used patches containing morphine since the baby’s birth.

Investigators say Greene illegally obtained the drugs at least 38 times in less than two years. Autopsy results concluded that high levels of morphine were found in the child’s blood.

Greene is currently in jail with no bond.
