HANFORD, Calif. (KCPQ) -- The family of a woman accused of murder after delivering a stillborn baby with toxic levels of meth in his system spoke out Tuesday.
Chelsea Becker, 25, is wanted by police.
Becker's aunt said her niece was using drugs throughout her four pregnancies and each baby had meth in his system. Sgt. Justin Vallin of the Hanford Police Department confirmed her statements.
“They did and CPS took them out of her custody when they were born,” he said.
Vallin said the pattern repeated itself last month when Becker gave birth to a stillborn boy with more than six times the toxic level of meth in his system.
“The levels of methamphetamine in this baby’s system were such high levels, even for an adult, so we believe she was using almost the whole entire time she was pregnant,” he said. He also said Becker admitted to meth use just days before giving birth.
A murder warrant was issued for Becker’s arrest.
