TOOELE, Utah (AP) - A Tooele woman has been charged after police say her 2-year-old son died with methadone in his system.

Thirty-two-year-old Jill Goff was charged Wednesday with second-degree felony child abuse homicide.

Tooele police Capt. Paul Wimmer says emergency crews arrived at Goff’s house Friday evening when the child, Aiden Goff, was unresponsive. Aiden was pronounced dead at the home.

Wimmer says the woman’s 8-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter later tested positive for methadone.

Police say Goff told officers she accidently poured methadone into a cup rather than Gatorade but didn’t immediately call for help because she was scared.

Goff is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
