Moxee mother investigated in baby son's deathNovember 6, 2013 @ 5:02 am
YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - A Moxee woman who was arrested Monday in the death of her month-old son has been released from jail as officials continue to investigate a possible manslaughter charge.
Court documents indicate the 22-year-old was drinking Sunday night and then slept in the same bed with her baby. Yakima County Coroner Jack Hawkins says the boy died from a lack of oxygen to the brain.
KIMA reports ( http://bit.ly/HtAFJF) the Department of Corrections also is looking into the case because the mother wasn't supposed to drink. She was on home supervision for a drunken driving arrest last year.
