A Taylorsville mother has been charged with reckless homicide after police found her 3-month-old infant dead in her home.
Kentucky State Police in Frankfort reported that 30-year-old Amy
Covyeow-Dorner was under the influence of illegal substances when
she left the child on a living room chair to sleep on Friday night.
He was not breathing when police arrived Saturday morning.
An autopsy will be conducted in Louisville on Sunday.
Covyeow-Dorner was also charged with three counts of wanton
endangerment because there were three other children in her care at
the time of the baby's death.
