Mother & Boyfriend Accidentally Give 11-Month-Old Baby OD Of Fentanyl



Mother Of 11-Month-Old Boy & Her Boyfriend Accidentally Give The Boy A Fatal Dose Of Fentanyl In An Attempt To Calm The Baby Down

The mother of an 11-month-old boy and her boyfriend accidentally gave the boy a fatal dose of fentanyl in an attempt to calm the baby down, according to the Onondaga County District Attorney.

The baby boy ingested the fatal dose of fentanyl inside a Syracuse apartment in May, according to court papers and prosecutors.

“I have never seen a baby die of fentanyl toxicity,” said Chief Assistant District Attorney Melinda McGunnigle who has worked as a prosecutor for 15 years. “We were shocked when we got the ME’s report.”

The boy’s mother, Elizabeth Sauve, 31, and her boyfriend, Quyen Huynh, 38, were charged Thursday with second-degree manslaughter, Chief Assistant District Attorney Melinda McGunnigle said.

The boy, Liam Sauve, ingested the synthetic opiate because the drug was improperly handled or stored by his mother and her boyfriend, according to criminal complaints filed in Syracuse City Court.

Both adults are accused of bringing fentanyl into an apartment on West Fayette Street in Syracuse, according to the complaint.

Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick said that his office believes the couple gave Liam fentanyl in an effort to quiet him down. The couple did not intend to kill the child but they are accused of recklessly causing his death, McGunnigle said.
