An Indiana couple has been arrested after police said an investigation revealed their three-month-old son died from ingesting methamphetamine.

The baby was later pronounced dead at the apartment, Fox59 reports.

An autopsy revealed that Eben tested positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine. The baby’s cause of death was listed as ‘acute methamphetamine ingestion’.
During the investigation into the baby’s death, police learned that Savage and Frisque had consumed meth and other drugs while caring for Eben and another child.
Once the investigation was closed, the case was sent to the Jefferson County Prosecutor’s Office for review and warrants were issued for the parents.
