Mom wanted after doing cocaine, killing unborn child
BATON ROUGE- Police have issued an arrest warrant for a mother who said she snorted cocaine while she was pregnant and her unborn child died.
Police said Princess Beachem delivered a stillborn seven months into her pregnancy after being rushed to an area hospital with abdominal pain. Doctors could not detect a heartbeat and performed an emergency cesarean section.
Beachem told investigators she did the drug several days before the September 18th emergency because she was upset the baby's father broke up with her.
She will be charged with second-degree feticide.
