A 32 year old Tempe woman identified as Gabrielle Marshall has been arrested in relation to the death of her baby who police say overdosed on fentanyl.
Gabrielle Marshall was booked into jail on suspicion of negligent homicide, a felony.
In September, Scottsdale Police were dispatched to a scene where a woman’s 13-month-old boy wasn’t breathing.
Paramedics took him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Investigators say the child was found with a pill under his tongue and holding a bag.
They say his mother administered Narcan to her son before paramedics also gave him the overdose treatment, but he didn’t make it.
On Oct. 10, officials with Phoenix Police Department say Narcan was administered to an infant.
According to statements, officers responded to an injured person call at an apartment complex near 79th Avenue and McDowell Road, and when they arrived, they found the infant, who appeared lethargic with shallow breathing.
Phoenix police say another infant tested positive for fentanyl on Oct. 12.
