PICKENS, S.C. (AP) - A Pickens County woman has been charged with giving her year-old grandson a lethal dose of a powerful narcotic in his sippy cup.

Multiple media outlets reported that 43-year-old Angela Denise Brewer of Pickens was arrested Thursday and jailed without bond on a charge of homicide by child abuse.

An arrest warrant says an autopsy found the child had ingested a lethal dose of Oxycodone. Traces of the drug were found in his cup after deputies responded to an emergency call for help two months ago.

The arrest warrant says Brewer was the child’s only caretaker at the time of his death.
