Man Charged With Putting Drugs In Baby's Bottle Goes To Trial

  " Both parents were in daily methadone programs to treat heroin addiction, but she thought Rosado had been clean since their 6-year-old daughter's birth."

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A Philadelphia man charged with putting heroin and methadone in a bottle to quiet his infant son, killing him, could get a verdict after a one-day trial.

Orlando Rosado had opted for a nonjury trial before a Philadelphia judge. His son, Christopher, died two days shied of his first birthday in May 2012.

The mother, 29-year-old Crystal Miller, says Rosado handled nighttime feedings while she slept.

Both parents were in daily methadone programs to treat heroin addiction, but she thought Rosado had been clean since their 6-year-old daughter's birth. Miller smiled Tuesday as she testified about how Rosado carefully boiled tap water for Christopher's formula.

But she says she ended the relationship when she could not get a straight answer about his death.

The 46-year-old Rosado is charged with third-degree murder and drug delivery causing death.
