Woman Charged in Peach Co. for Daughter's Methadone Death | Crime
A Kentucky woman faces two felony murder counts in Peach County for allegedly causing her 8-year-old daughter's death by methadone overdose.
Traci Asberry was arrested as a fugitive Monday in Lexington, Ky., according to the Lexington-Fayette County jail web site.
She faces charges in the December 2010 death of her daughter, Hannah Bayne, at a Peach County hotel.
Peach County Sheriff Terry Deese told 13WMAZ that investigators initially believed that the death was due to natural causes.
Toxicology tests showed that Hannah Bayne died from ingesting a lethal amount of methadone, according to an indictment last week from a Peach County grand jury.
