Mother Blamed For Baby's Death
08/22/2017

(MSC News)--A baby is dead, and a Saint Joseph, Missouri woman is accused of playing a role in the death of her child.

KQ2-TV reports that 21-year-old Doris Koon has been formally charged with first degree child endangerment in connection with the death of the baby Monday.

The TV station, citing court documents, reports the baby was found laying directly under Koon, on a couch, when she woke up Monday morning. According to witnesses cited in the court documents, the child appeared to be dead.

The probable cause statement says Koon took the child to the hospital, but did not seek medical attention until she was contacted by security, nearly three hours after the fact.

It alleges that she was drinking alcohol prior to falling asleep on the couch.

The baby is identified as being under 3-months old.

Arraignment is set for Friday morning.
