Cocaine In Breast Milk Caused Death, Prosecutors Say

`A Michigan woman is charged with involuntary manslaughter after prosecutors say her 5-month-old daughter died from drinking breast milk containing cocaine.

Sara Shelby was arraigned Thursday. If convicted, she faces up to 15 years in prison.

Prosecutors claim Shelby used cocaine and the drug was passed on to the baby through her breast milk.

Shelby’s lawyer said that he and his client disagree with the prosecution’s theory about what caused baby’s death last year.’
