Iowa Woman Charged With Giving Daughter Antidepressant

GLENWOOD, Iowa (AP) — A western Iowa woman has been charged with giving her 8-year-old daughter a fatal amount of an antidepressant last year.

The Mills County Attorney charged the 34-year-old Glenwood, Iowa, woman Monday with child endangerment and providing drugs to a minor without a prescription.

The woman’s daughter died last October. An autopsy showed that she had toxic levels of the antidepressant amitriptyline in her system.

The woman hasn’t made her initial court appearance yet, so she doesn’t have a lawyer representing her.
