Parents Face Manslaughter Charges After Toddler Dies From Meth Poisoning: Cops
Two parents were arrested in Baltimore after police determined they were allegedly responsible for the death of their 2-year-old daughter.
Two Baltimore parents are now charged with manslaughter after their 2-year-old daughter died from meth poisoning, according to police.
Alvin Thompson and Sinead McNair, both 25, took their daughter, Korri, to the University of Maryland’s Pediatrics Unit at 6 a.m. August 13, after she was found unconscious and unresponsive, according to a police report.

Police found doctors trying to resuscitate Korri when they arrived on the scene and she was later transferred to the intensive care unit, where she died August 24.
Homicide detectives determined Korri had ingested methadone, causing organ failure, the report said.
"After interviewing the parents and everybody involved, the detectives did conclude and they felt reasonably strong that the parents are definitely responsible," Baltimore Detective Donny Moses told WBALTV.
Police arrested both parents Tuesday at their Exeter Street home.
They are also charged with child abuse, reckless endangerment, and neglect, according to court documents.
