Mother indicted for child’s death
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The mother of a four-month-old girl who died of drug toxicity last November has been indicted.
Catrina Perryman, 34, has been charged with reckless homicide in the death of her 4-month-old daughter, Isabella Chavez.
In November 2013, Perryman called paramedics saying her daughter had been having difficulty breathing and was turning blue.
Perryman said she had given the girl Ibuprofen, “but an autopsy showed she also had a level of Benadryl in her system that was several times the amount considered to be therapeutic for an adult.”
