Darlington woman arrested in death of unborn child
Sheriff Tony Chavis says investigators with the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit have arrested a Darlington woman who gave birth to a stillborn child in October of last year.
“Through a thorough and intensive investigation, my investigators were able to gather evidence and establish probable cause to show the mother’s drug use led to the death of the child,” stated Chavis.
Investigators arrested Alanta Wayde Feagin, 27, of Darlington last week.
Feagin is charged with homicide by child abuse.
Investigators allege Feagin intentionally and knowingly ingested cocaine, benzoylecgonine and methadone while 40 weeks pregnant with the victim.
Feagin was denied bond by a Darlington County magistrate and remained in custody at the W. Glenn Campbell Detention Center.
