This happened near where I live, I cant believe the husband is not facing any charges, Yes I know she took the shit on her own, but he brought it in their home. The husband and the dealer who sold it to him should be held accountable for her death as well as the babies. There is no justice for the ones who die from Methadone, the law protects the drug dealers and users and its not right!!!!!

I agree completely. This is horrendous how the dealers get by. Sure she had the option to NOT use, but NO ONE should pay with their life, NO ONE!!! Her husband if no one else should have some form of criminal punishment, it killed their unborn child for pete's sake. She has already "paid" and paid dearly from that lethal mistake, he should pay as well as the dealer. But they shield and protect each other.

What a last thought to take to your last breath. With that statement alone it just floors me that there are no charges being brought. It goes without saying what I would do had it been my child. I pray every day to find the scum that provided Tim with that lethal shit. May they rot in hell

The whole story is ridiculous. The woman to take these drugs while PREGNANT, the man to say what he did, to bring the drugs into the home, it's his baby too. It just sickens me.
