BELLEVILLE-- The mother of a 5-month-old baby who was beaten to death last month was charged with endangering the health of a child after police said she shot up heroin while she, the baby and her toddler sister were in the back seat of a car.

Kayla L. Frazier, 23, of 1001 Belle Valley Drive, Belleville, was charged Friday after police learned that the man charged in the death of the baby, Alayna Frazier, injected the mother with heroin, Belleville Assistant Police Chief Roger Barfield said. Read more

You don't even know what your talking about. Millions of mothers and fathers in the US do drugs everyday and it doesn't affect their parenting skills. Just because she experimented with drugs didnt give that monster the right kill her baby. Tell me honestly, you've never smoked a joint? I guess it's just easier to sit back and judge everyone else. I am a personal friend of Kaylas and she is far from a junkie. She is a single mom who works and goes to school full time. Do you think it would have made any difference? Alayna was MURDERED by someone she trusted and thought was a friend. Hell she knew him for ten years. Don't you think she would have done something to prevent this if she knew it was going to happen? To think anything other than that is just sick. Just so you don't think i'm only sticking up for my friend the guy who did this is my blood cousin. Guess waters thicker than blood this time sister. Kayla is a good person and a good mother. She is going to have to live the rest of her life knowing she made a bad decision. Her doing drugs didn't have anything to do with a grown mans decision to shake a beautiful 5 month old baby until she was dead.Got anything else to say about my friend? Bring it on. I noticed you didn't make any comments about Cole aka Kenneth Zook murdering an innocent. Why is that?

I WILL CERTAINLY TELL YOU THAT I AM A MOTHER & YES I HAVE SMOKED A JOINT OR TWO IN MY TIME, BUT NEVER AROUND MY CHILD & I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THE MILLIONS OF MOTHERS & FATHERS SHOOTING HEROIN ARE HAVING THEIR PARENTING SKILLS AFFECTED. I HAVE NEVER DONE HEROIN, BUT I DO KNOW PEOPLE WHO HAVE. THAT SHIT TAKES YOU TO A WHOLE OTHER WORLD THAT CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE A PART OF. IF YOU THINK OTHERWISE YOU ARE PROBABLY ONE OF THOSE MOTHER'S ALSO.

The child died in the hospital because after a baby is shaken so severly, the brain starts to swell after the brain being moved back and forth from the force. This is why brain damage occurs. The brain does not swell up in just a second. It is a matter of time. Once the brain swells to a point where it can not go anywhere, because of the bone in the skull, it starts to compress the precious tissues in the brain. This in it's self can cause respiratory failure. Doctors can remove parts of the skull, to give the swelling more room. But, the swelling sometimes can not be stopped. This was a horrible thing! Regardless of wether mom smoked heroin, shot up whatever. The baby was shaken so severly, that death was ultimate. It makes me sick that this innocent child was killed. That poor little baby. Didn't even know what was happening to her at the time. GOd rest her little soul.

I'll bring it on, you idiot. You do not see a difference in smoking a joint and shooting up heroin??? I am a mother of 2 kids and have never and will never do drugs around my kids or have any other idiot in my home around my baby shooting up. The question I have is, are you on heroin now, to make a comment like that you must be on something or are you just a fool??? She was a real wonderful mother-she shouldn't even be called that.

If people took the time to find out who they are just throwing to the fire...you would find out that you need to shut your pie hole and take your waste of apparent life and use it for the good and research (ps knowledge is power) to find out that Cole is not even close to the person that you are talking about. If Cole should be in trouble then the mother should be for sure.....if he is a nasty person like you claim then the mother should be in more trouble than Cole...She was the protector of "these" babies.... They were not even Cole's ......Take your interest in other people's lives and turn it to some sort of good deed.
PS your the kind of people that hanging had to be done away with...."hang before you know" I'm from Oklahoma City and we dont even have that way of thinking about this story... Ill., NV.,MO., you should know better.
Yes I am related to Cole and he is my cousin....and I dont mind tell everyone......

1st Cousin to Cole Zook and Ohh yea Monica Cochran you aren't family you liar. Cole would never hurt a child. If the baby died from being shook then how come it died in the hospital? She was a whore who love heroin and not her kids. Get a life! The facts will all start to come out. The very next day after her child dies she was buying more heroin! Like she gave a shit!
Isnt it amazing how people have no clue what is going on and so quick to judge... I think since they were her kids and if what happened did???? She is the mom and I feel put her kids at risk.... I dont believe Cole's were there do you???? Didnt think so!
I have tried to learn to just let this bs roll off my back...

During the autopsy of the baby the medical examiner found many old fractures on the baby. The baby also had blunt force to the back of her head that couldn't have occured during that time. States Attorney is now wanting to have a plea deal with Cole's attorney because they see just want a liar this mother is. She has changed her story a multitude of times. Cole is due in court on July 29th and the truth shall set him free!!!

I'm a single mom of two and i go to school and work yet DONT do drugs. Maybe if she had a sound state of mind and NOT a doped up one, she would have made better choices on who her child was with. You think its ok that she does herion??? HOPEFULLY, you will be sterilized and DONT already have children. YOU ARE A DISGRACE

They BOTH need to be sterilized, and all of the people that defend them too. It makes me SICk to hear stuff like this happening and OUTRAGED to find out others think its ok. That is what is wrong with our world. They should be shook and hit until they die just like that poor baby
