Woman sentenced for drug death of infant daughter

A West Baltimore woman has been sentenced to 10 months in prison for killing her infant daughter when she mixed methadone into the baby's formula to keep the child from crying, city prosecutors said.

Teresa Ann Younger, 25, of the 2300 block of W. Baltimore St. was sentenced for involuntary manslaughter Aug. 23 in Baltimore Circuit Court. Judge Joseph McCurdy sentenced her to six years in prison, but suspended all but 10 months of the sentence so Younger could be placed in a residential drug treatment center, according to prosecutors.

Younger's 5-month-old daughter, Matia Grant, died March 4, 1999, of methadone intoxication. Younger told detectives that she mixed methadone from her drug treatment program into the formula because the baby was crying.
