Hagerstown, MD. (The Weekly Vice) -Yadina Morales, a 22-year-old Maryland woman, was jailed Saturday after she allegedly smothered her baby daughter to death while attempting to breast feed the child while heavily intoxicated.
According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to a Hagerstown residence at around 7 a.m. when Morales woke up to find her 2-month-old baby unresponsive.
Investigators say Morales was "highly intoxicated" when she fell asleep while breast feeding her baby. She woke up a few hours later to find the child underneath her and unresponsive.
First responders rushed the little girl to Meritus Medical Center where she was pronounced dead a short time later. Morales was also taken to MMC where she was evaluated before her arrest.
Morales was booked into jail and charged with manslaughter, second-degree child abuse and reckless endangerment.
Last year, a man that Morales identified as her boyfriend, was charged with child abuse after Morales' 2-year-old daughter arrived to the emergency room with fractured ribs and other injuries. The suspect ultimately pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.
