OXFORD, CT (WFSB) -- A mother from Oxford has been arrested after her 11-month old son died from a drug overdose.

Back in July, police were called to a home in Oxford for the report of a baby not breathing.

According to a police report, the medical examiner ruled the baby’s death was caused by acute intoxication due to the combined effects of fentanyl and morphine, with recent cocaine exposure.

During a search of the home, investigators found drug paraphernalia, heroin, and plastic baggies consistent with being used to package drugs.

Police arrested the child’s mother, 35-year-old Rebecca Dixon, on Tuesday and charged her with second-degree manslaughter.

There is no crime here,

a stupid mistake does not deserve

incarceration.She will suffer enough

knowing her part in the death

of her child.


Neuter her now, and, if she has any other children, take them away.

Do you wanna feed her kids?

That's what your taxes do you know?


If you assume that she has more children and that she is on food stamps/welfare. A touch foolish even for you.
