The death of an unborn child lands a woman behind bars and charged with a class A felony. Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver says Ciji White gave birth to a stillborn baby in November of last year.
An autopsy results showed that the baby was positive for methamphetamines. Sheriff Shaver says a grand jury was presented with the case and indicted White earlier this month. He also says that while they have made many arrests in connection to chemical endangerment it is important for people to understand the danger of using illegal drugs while pregnant.
White is being held at the Cherokee County Detention Center on a $100,000 bond.
