After being transferred to a local hospital, the young infant was confirmed dead. Evans was resuscitated by medical personnel. It’s unknown whether the accused has a lawyer who can speak for her.
According to prosecutors, Evans had purchased drugs earlier in the day and had ingested them by crushing and snorting the pills before her babysitting duty with the newborn.

Evans allegedly used fentanyl before passing out on the victim and choking the infant to death, according to police. Specialists verified that Evans had bought opioids before that day and had ingested them by squashing and grunting the pills prior to dealing with the kid,’ police claim. Evans was found unconscious on the side of her bed, her upper body totally covering the infant,’ according to the report. Evans was set up for Bay County Jail as she looks for her first court appearance.
The amount of her bail has not yet been made public. It’s unclear if she would have pleaded guilty.
May the little child’s soul rest in peace.
