Mom indicted for overdosing daughter on meds
TENNESSEE – A mother in Tennessee has been indicted months after her 4-year-old daughter died.
Special Victims Investigators with the District Attorney’s office say not only did this mother lie about what she gave the child, but gave her a deadly dose of Benedryl.
After only 4 months of life, a baby girl died.
Catrina Perryman is charged with reckless homicide in the death of her daughter Isabella Chavez.
Perryman called an ambulance the day Isabella died last November.
Perryman reportedly told paramedics her daughter was having a hard time breathing and was turning blue.
Perryman said she had given the girl Ibuprofen, “but an autopsy showed she also had a level of Benadryl in her system that was several times the amount considered to be therapeutic for an adult.”
