CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa. (WJAC) — State police say a Grampian couple is being charged for the death of their baby.

According to a criminal complaint, 23-year-old Dakota Canfield is facing charges for endangering the welfare of children and 22-year-old Alexa Kephart is facing charges for involuntary manslaughter after they found their baby had died in their bed.

Troopers say the baby’s death happened in July at a home in Penn Township, Clearfield County.

According to the criminal complaint, Canfield and Kephart were sleeping in the same bed as the 39-day-old baby and her 22-month-old brother.

Investigators say the baby girl was found unconscious and blue when the family woke up in the morning.

Kephart told authorities that she picked the baby up, called 911 and began performing CPR until EMS personnel arrived and took over.

The child was taken to Penn Highlands Dubois Hospital Emergency Room, where she was pronounced dead.

Troopers say that during an interview with the baby’s parents, they learned that the Clearfield County Children and Youth Services had an open case with them that began when the child was born.

A CYS caseworker confirmed that on the day the child was born, Kephart had methamphetamines and amphetamines in her system, according to the complaint.

The caseworker told troopers that another time after that the couple had tested positive for methamphetamines, amphetamines, marijuana, ecstasy and alcohol.

Following the baby’s death, the couple was drug tested again, and they both tested positive for methamphetamines and marijuana, according to state police.

Troopers say Canfield admitted that he and Kephart had used methamphetamine and marijuana before and after the birth of the child.                                             https://wjactv.com/news/local/troopers-grampian-couple-tested-positive-for-meth-multiple-times-before-babys-death

Does this mean there's two less people belonging to "The Ring"?

I'm wondering why you are making a joke regarding this tragedy?
