Baby Born With Blood Alcohol Level of .234 After Mom Allegedly Drank While Pregnant: Cops
Rianna Marie Cameron, 29, has been charged with manslaughter in the infant's death.
A Minnesota mom has been charged with manslaughter after allegedly binge drinking while 34 weeks pregnant.
Rianna Marie Cameron, 29, was reportedly found disoriented alongside her baby, who was not breathing and still attached to her by its umbilical cord.
The baby’s father called police once he saw the baby lying at the foot of the bed on Dec. 30, but attempts to save the child were unsuccessful, the criminal complaint states.
There were also two other toddlers in the home, according to the complaint.
Police said Cameron told them she went on a “bender” and drank a liter of whiskey that night, prompting her to go into labor.
An autopsy of the baby said its cause of death was “acute alcohol intoxication and unsupported delivery” and the report listed the infant’s blood alcohol level at .234, WFAA reported.
Cameron reportedly had a history of alcohol abuse.
She has been charged with two counts of second-degree manslaughter. She could serve up to 10 years if convicted.
