Two women will appear before the judge about the alleged medication of a four-year-old boy, who was found with broken bones and dangerously underweight.
The couple, 29 and 30, were arrested in the NSW Illawarra area after the child was rushed to the hospital in October, dropped into and out of consciousness and demolished his words.
Doctors told the police that the boy had a limited drug in his system, had previous fractures of the upper limbs and was severely underweight for his age.
Detectives were also told that it was not the first time that the child with similar symptoms was taken to the hospital.
The police raided a house in the Illawarra area on October 12 and seized prescription drugs, among other things.
The 30-year-old woman was accused of use poison to endanger life and failed to care for children because they could cause the risk of serious injury.
The 29-year-old woman was accused of failing to care for children because they could cause the risk of serious injury.
The police will claim in court that the child was drugged with prescription drugs that had not been prescribed on many occasions.
Both received a strict conditional bail and will appear on Wednesday at the local court in Port Kembla.
The boy is in the care of the Ministry of Family and Community Services.
Anyone who is concerned about suspicions of child abuse or exploitation must call Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000.
