3rd Person Charged in Overdose Death of Monongah Child

Posted: Updated:
A third person has been charged in the April overdose death of a Monongah child.

The child's great grandmother, Harriet Long, has been charged with child neglect resulting in death. 

Detective Sergeant Phillips said Long was aware the child had gotten into some pills. When she was asked if she knew what to do by the child's parents, she stated "she didn't know what to do with an overdose". 

Detective Phillips said Long failed to call for medical attention. 

She has been released from the NCRJ on $10,000 bond.
