Two people are behind bars after police say their child died of an overdose earlier this month.
It happened in the family's apartment on Camden Avenue in Monongah. Police said Andrew Hall and Brittany Edgell were woken up by their two-year-old girl stumbling around the room early on April 12th. Police said the couple found Tramadol tablets laying on the floor, and assumed the girl swallowed some. Instead of getting help, they gave the girl a cold bath, watched a movie with her, made her vomit, and put her down to sleep. The girl then went into cardiac arrest and died that afternoon.
The couple is being held on $5 million bond each.
