Why was Antoinette King consuming a mix of alcohol, drugs, and pills? The reason why she was using is not revealed. She passed out on top of her 13-month-old son, Jerimiah. A relative sent an alert to authorities as both were unconscious and unresponsive
The authorities took them to Virtua Memorial Hospital. Jerimiah was pronounced dead. Unfortunately, the baby could not survive as the alert was sent too late, and he had already died.
A sentence of four years is her sentence. She admitted to the crime, and she pleaded guilty. After the revival at the hospital, she admitted in court that she, in fact, was using multiple substances and so she was high and drunk.
The incident is shocking and baffling to anyone who knows about it. Because of the fact, such a thing is something no one can imagine. But such a thing actually did happen to a one-year-old baby.
Processing such a shocking piece of news is not possible. But it can not be denied that such things happen all around the world. Mothers, fathers are killing their babies. Some do it with reason, though it does not justify it. And some do not intend to.
The reason for Antoinette King for using so profusely and multiple substances at the same time is something that is not available to the knowledge of the public. It may never be available, but if she requires mental assistance, then the State shall giver her so. It will fall under her rights as an American citizen.
She will spend four years in jail as directed by the Superior Court of Dove County. What will the next steps be after her release, as of now, only they know, but we do hope that something like this is never seen by the news again?
