I really don't know what to say except how? How could they? $500 and not even feed the baby? Time to reflect , 15 years minimum IMHO.

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- A month-old baby died while his parents were on a three-day crack coc aine binge that began after Thanksgiving dinner, police
The cause of death was not immediately clear. Sonia Thomas, 39, and Neal Anthony Bryan, 46, have been charged with child neglect. More charges could
be filed after autopsy results are available, police spokesman Jeff Kelly said.
Bryan told police he awoke to find that his son, whose name was not released, was on the bed next to him, not wearing a diaper and not breathing,
according to a police report.
Thomas told investigators the baby was blue and she ran to the kitchen and sprinkled water on him in an attempt to "get him back." He was pronounced
dead at a hospital after the couple called 911.
Thomas said she could not remember when she had last fed the baby because "she was messed up on crack" and tired, the report said. It said the
couple admitted smoking about $500 worth of crack coc aine over three days.
Thomas was being held without bail. Bryan was held on $10,000 bail. Information on whether they had retained attorneys was not immediately available
