Spotsylvania mother charged with murder after 4-year-old eats THC gummies
A Spotsylvania mother has been charged with murder and child neglect after her child died after eating a large number of THC gummies. The Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office said on Oct. 17, a grand jury indicted 30-year-old Dorothy Clements for the death of her 4-year-old son. The child died on May 8, after suffering a medical emergency. Spotsylvania Detectives learned that the child’s toxicity levels showed a high level of THC.
The sheriff’s office says doctors told detectives that if the boy received quick medical attention, his death could have been prevented. Clements is being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
