Pennsylvania Mom Laces Son's Formula With Drug So He Would Sleep Most Times

A Pennsylvania mother is accused of lacing her son's formula with a drug that helps heroin addicts kick the habit so he would sleep.

Corinne Barndt, 28, told police she spiked her eight-month-old son's formula six or seven times from November 2015 to April 2016. The drug she is accused of using on her child is buprenorphine. It's a synthetic opioid painkiller also used to wean addicts off heroin.

Buprenorphine is addictive and can cause respiratory problems and even death when taken in high doses, or when combined with other substances.


She was arraigned Thursday on charges of child endangerment and reckless endangerment.

She remained jailed Friday in Bucks County Prison on $1million bond.

Ms Barndt faces a preliminary hearing on August 8.
