A Scioto County mother is facing charges after deputies said her infant was hospitalized because the baby was fed sugar water instead of formula for several days.
Justine Smith, 36, of Franklin Furnance was charged with child endangerment on Monday. The Scioto County Sheriff's Department said they were notified on July 21 about a 2-month-old infant that was hospitalized at St. Mary's Medical Center in Huntington. The baby was treated and released to a foster home through Scioto County Children Services.
After an investigation and a Scioto County grand jury indictment, charges were filed against Smith on Monday. Deputies said more arrests could follow.
