A mother who was arrested on charges of murder for allowing her 7-week-old child to die of starvation, told police that drank her own breast milk, police in Oregon said.
The Douglas County sheriff’s Office said that they have arrested 26-year-old Stephen Michael Williams Jr. and 21-year-old Amanda Marie Hancock, 21, both of Glendale, after being accused of allowing their baby to die of starvation.
According to the police investigation, the couple showed extreme indifference to human life by denying food and medical care for Data Toria Hancock.
If convicted of murder, they face life in prison. The couple’s other 2-year-old son was placed under protective custody. During questioning, the mother told investigators that she allowed men to watch how she drinks her own breast milk.
The two said that they fed the baby milk several times a day, and they don’t know why the baby died. An autopsy performed by the medical examiner’s office determined that the baby died of starvation.
