53-year old Roxanne Record, and her daughter, 29-year old, Kadjah Record, were arrested on Friday afternoon and charged with first-degree murder in the death of 4-year old, China Record. CBS NEWS reported that officers were called to a Baton Rouge home at around 11 a.m. on Thursday, after reports of an unresponsive child.
The child was pronounced dead at the scene. The East Baton Rouge Coroner’s Office showed the child’s cause of death to be alcohol poisoning. 4-year old China Record’s blood alcohol level was .680%. The legal blood alcohol limit for an adult operating a motor vehicle is .08%. Little China’s blood-alcohol level was more than 8 times the legal limit for a driving adult, according to authorities.
The incident is alleged to have began when the child mistakenly drank Whiskey from a soda bottle belonging to one of the adults. As punishment for sipping the Whiskey in a soda bottle, the grandmother (Roxanne Record) made the child drink the rest of the Whiskey remaining in the bottle. The bottle was alleged to be more than half-full. The child’s mother, (Kadjah Record), allegedly watched on as her mother forced her child to drink from the bottle.
