A pair of teenaged parents are in jail facing murder charges after their infant son dies from drinking chemicals used to make meth.

It was an alarming death of a 20-month old boy.

"It's so tragic," says neighbor Mary Burke.

The child died after autopsy reports show he ingested chemicals used in making methamphetamine at their Boston Hill Road home in Wayne County.

The child's 19-year old father Bryan Daniels and 14-year old mother are now in jail, facing murder and manufacturing methamphetamine charges.

Upon investigation, 4 others were also arrested for manufacturing meth, including 26-year old Danny Anderson, 24-year old James Hunt, 21-year old Alisha Dicken, and 24-year old Wesley Bell.

    Meth-making whether manufactured by drug companies or home-made should be stopped. It's so sad, hearing about all the young lives adversely affected by chemicals and drugs across our blue-grass state. This is unexceptable, and we should all say, "enough, already". It takes the deaths of infants to get our attention, sometimes. Law makers are not addressing these issues, and it makes me wonder, why our future generations-are being allowed to kill off themselves and their off-spring, this way!!!

    Hey David, sorry you took my earlier comment personally. I am glad you were a responsible person to wait until you got married to have a child, unfortunally not everyone comes from the same kind of background as you do. You see, I made a mistake when I was 15 and got pregnant. I kept my baby, but I also finished school and worked to raise that child. I now have two grown children, not involved with drugs, and worked for law enforcement. I got married when my oldest was 7, but I did what I had to do for that child until then. Still, others need to make sure that an infant is taken care of, and not necessarily you but there are many that don't want to get involved and that is the make-up of society. As for the one finger you have for me, I will pray for you, as I am a God fearing woman and I will pray for all involved here. As others have said, no matter the judgement here on earth, those responsible will have to face a final judgement, and may God have mercy on their souls.

    The Government wont let you or me discipline our children and I'm not talking about beating or starving them or such things as that, I'm talking about taking a good keen switch and giving one a good whipping my parents spanked me and my siblings when we were at home and all 6 of us turned out pretty good daddy was a coal miner mommy stayed home and took care of the house and that's the way I raised my 2 children and they turned out alright both of them got a good education and do very well for them self's. We need to go back to some good old family values and things will work out better for our young people.

    I think the social service system in Kentcuky is a total crock. They NEVER step in and remove a child when the child is in harm but they will remove or threaten to remove children when they are not in any harm. Does Makayla Watkins ring a bell... Her parents were reported to social services several times and look what our wonderful social services did for that poor innoncent little girl. She died as a result of social services doing their job. Somehow something needs to change in our state to ensure the safety of children. They were not asked to be brought into this world, it's up to adults to take care of them and protect them. Until social services gets off their butts and does their job properly this is going to continue to happen unfortunately. If law prohibts certain things to be done, then our Govenor needs to make changes in the laws to protect children. I'm sure if it was someone close to his family, he would do something about it

    Why are people so eager to point fingers at you my thought of that is when you points at me there are 3 fingers pointing back at you try it if you dont believe me point your finger now at the pc now aren't there 3 fingers pointing back at you. By the way someone said they are no longer claiming ky for their state what did the state ever do to them makes me laugh its the people in the state no the state itself. I am so sorry for the family that lost the child but the baby will never worry anymore it will be with Jesus in heaven when he comes again the baby is resting for a short time till Jesus comes agian. Dont' blame the 14 year old mother she is only a kid that had a kid where was the mother of the 14 year old who lets their 12 year old daughter out with 17 year old guy wow unbelievable. Anyways God Bless everyone who reads this.

    OK, the mother is 14 now, which means she was 12 when the baby was born. Only in the third world country of Kentucky, getting 11/12 year olds knocked up. She needed birth control.

    Hey "one to blame" Don't your dare blame society or me for this. This is about personal responsibilty. I waited until I was married and had a good income before having kids. I have never messed with drugs. I do not want or need society raising my family. So yes I will point my finger. I also got a finger for you.

    Thanks "One to Blame", I feel the same way. Of course the parents must take responsibility, but as a village, we've seriously lost touch with these young people... Lets stop indicting, and start looking out for our kids... I'm deeply ashamed..

    To RH: I'm sorry that you and your husband have not been blessed with a child, yet. Hang in there GOD will do His work when you least expect it. AND YES I agree with you, it's terrible that the government basically "pays" babies to have babies.... therefore they continue to reproduce. I no longer claim Kentucky as my state, and therefore have no say-so in the states laws... however, I would hope that with as many cases as I've read on here (in the news)...that the voting citizens of Kentucky would vote to change the laws. If you CAN'T afford to support yourself you SHOULD not have a baby....IF you do have a baby - YOUR government check (free cheese and all) will be taken from you and given to someone who is a productive citizen of the state. Best wishes to you RH and your husband. God bless.
