    Is there any precedent for a homicide charge in this case? I get that 1) she took drugs, 2) she breastfed knowing that she took drugs, and 3) she was probably aware that drugs are bad for the baby. However, even if those three criteria are met, don't the prosecutors still have to prove that 4) she breastfed the baby with tainted breastmilk with the intention of killing the baby?

    Or is manslaughter included in the definition of 'criminal homicide' that she is reported to be charged with?
