Overdosing Ohio grandmother imprisoned in infant’s death
CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio woman whose infant grandson drowned in a bathtub after she overdosed on heroin has been sentenced to six years in prison.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that 43-year-old Kathy Huff wept and apologized in court today. She was sentenced after pleading guilty to charges including involuntary manslaughter in the death of her 4-month-old grandson, Killian Ronan.
Huff was baby-sitting her grandson at her Cincinnati-area home Oct. 3 and prepared a bath for them. Her husband came home and found them both in the tub. The baby died two weeks later at a hospital.
One of her attorneys, Charlie Rittgers, said Huff hid her addiction from her family. He said the death of the baby will haunt Huff for the rest of her life.
