PA Woman convicted in toddler’s death linked to fentanyl


PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pittsburgh woman has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter and child endangerment in the death of her toddler daughter that authorities attributed to the narcotic fentanyl found in the child’s pink sippy cup.

Allegheny County jurors convicted Jhenea Pratt in the death of 17-month-old Charlette Napper-Talley but rejected first- or third-degree murder convictions.

Defense attorney Brandon Herring said his client “has always maintained that she would never intentionally hurt” her child.
