A couple in Pinellas County, Florida, was arrested after a baby in their care died from an oxycodone overdose, CBS12 reported on Monday.

On March 9, deputies found a 17-month-old baby girl unresponsive in her pack and play at a residence in Largo. The baby was pronounced dead at the scene. During the investigation, deputies discovered oxycodone and Xanax in the bedroom, and the couple, Adela and Kyle Allen, both 43, gave inconsistent statements. Kyle Allen claimed he was at work when the baby died.

Further investigation revealed the baby died from oxycodone toxicity, and no one in the house had a prescription for the drug. On June 7, during another interview, Kyle Allen admitted to selling narcotics provided by Adela Allen but denied knowing drugs were in the home at the time of the baby’s death. Adela Allen continued to give inconsistent statements, claiming she didn’t know the child would die from oxycodone.
