A 3-month-old girl who tested positive for meth, heroin, and morphine was allegedly dosed with a painkiller by her parents hours after she was born to hide the girl's addiction from hospital staff.
The Utah County Sheriff reports that Colby Glen Wilde, 29, and Lacey Dawn Christenson, 26, face multiple charges, including child endangerment and drug distribution.
Christenson admitted to police she used heroin and prescription drugs heavily throughout her pregnancy. She knew her daughter would be born addicted. When hospital staff weren't looking, she and Wilde allegedly rubbed a crushed painkiller called Suboxone on the girl's gums to cover up her symptoms
