Chelsea Cheyenne Becker, 25, was arrested and charged with murder after delivering a stillborn baby with lots of meth in his system
A 25-year-old woman from California has been accused of murder after giving birth to a stillborn baby who has been found to have toxic methamphetamine levels in his system.
Chelsea Cheyenne Becker gave birth on September 10, but her child was already dead.
Doctors believe she may have used meth while she was pregnant, eventually killing the baby.
Death was condemned as a murder after an autopsy by the Kings County Coroner & # 39; s Office found methamphetamine in the baby's system.
Police arrested Becker on Tuesday evening on charges of first-degree murder and booked on Wednesday in the Kings County Jail in Hanford with bail at $ 5 million. She pleaded not guilty to the allegations according to CNN.
& # 39; The levels of methamphetamine in this baby's system were such high levels, even for an adult, so we believe she used almost all the time she was pregnant, & Detective Sgt. Justin Vallin from the Hanford Police Department told Kg PE.
Police officers say that Becker has admitted that she used meth during her pregnancy until just a few days before delivery.

Three of Becker's previous children were also born with meth in their systems and she has lost custody of several children due to substance abuse problems.
Becker's aunt, Julie Lance, has adopted her three-year-old son and currently has custody of her one-year-old. He is the oldest child, a four-year-old has been adopted.
Her cousin, Terra Ordonez, said she hoped Becker would recover from this low point.
& # 39; I am excited that she stands up straight and becomes clean because I know she is smart enough to get out, & # 39; said Ordonez. & # 39; It is an eye opener for many women who are struggling. If you are pregnant, scream for help. & # 39;
