Woman charged with drugging 3 more of her children

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Nashville woman accused of drugging and killing her 22-month-old son has now been charged with giving drugs to her other three children.

The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/1wbCeNM) reports that on June 20, 2013, emergency responders found 30-year-old Jamey Chaffin sitting on the front steps of her home holding the body of the toddler.

She was indicted and accused of giving the boy a dose of her prescription morphine to try and put him to sleep.

New test results show Chaffin may have given prescription drugs to her other three children - ages 7, 5 and 2. She was indicted earlier this month on additional charges.
