Sudden Infant Death Syndrome was not the cause of death of a 6-month-old girl whose mother is accused of neglecting her, Boone County Chief Medical Examiner Eddie Adelstein testified Wednesday during day two of a trial charging the infant’s mother with second-degree involuntary manslaughter, first-degree child endangerment and possession of marijuana.
