|NEOSHO, Mo. (AP) — A Granby woman is sentenced to four years in the death of her infant son.|
A Newton County Judge sentenced Elizabeth Farnam today on charges of involuntary manslaughter.
Elizabeth Farnam, of Granby, pleaded guilty in September to second-degree involuntary manslaughter in the June 2012 death of Logan Crow.
A toxicology report showed the toddler died from an overdose of methadone, which is prescribed mainly to treat heroin addiction. Investigators said Farnam had obtained the drug illegally.
Farnam told police at the time that she dropped a methadone pill while Logan was sitting on her lap during a church meeting. The toddler began sweating profusely on the drive home and was put down for an afternoon nap, but wasn't checked until the next morning.
