5 year old Innocent Girl died of heart attack
A Colorado woman and her two cousins are facing criminal charges weeks after her 5-year-old daughter reportedly died from an accidental methamphetamine overdose.
Stephanie Alvarado, 26, Daniel Alvarado, 27, and Bertha Ceballos-Romo, 26, are charged with child abuse resulting in death, possession of controlled substance, and reckless endangerment.
KCNC reported that the charges stem from the December 12 death of Sophia Larson, who a recently-released arrest affidavit stated drank “meth bong water” from a water bottle containing methamphetamine.
The trio allegedly told police that they were smoking meth together on the day in question because Stephanie Alvarado had lost her job at a dental office for failing a drug test. They claimed they continued smoking meth while driving to pick up Sophia Larson from school but stopped when she got in the car, according to The Denver Post.
