Police have made an arrest following the death of a 3-year-old boy in Stafford.
The child’s death was reported back in April. He was found dead at a home on Old Birch Road, police said.
In August, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said the cause of death for the 3-year-old was acute methadone intoxication. His death was ruled a homicide.
On Tuesday, police arrested the child’s mother, 24-year-old Jessica Jean York.
She was charged with second-degree manslaughter, risk of injury to a child, and first-degree reckless endangerment.
She is being held on $500,000 bond and is expected to appear in court on Wednesday.
