A Shinnston woman and her husband have been charged with what authorities are calling the unintentional suffocation of her 3-month-old son.

Tricia Brooke Moore McCoy, 27, and Clovis Harold McCoy, 32, are charged with child neglect resulting in death and child neglect creating a risk of serious injury or death.

The Harrison County Sheriff's Department said the infant suffocated Tuesday while his mother was sleeping with him.

Sheriff deputies said Tricia McCoy allegedly had taken two prescription drugs, one of which was given to her by her husband.

Authorities said Clovis McCoy knew his wife was impaired when he left her alone with the baby and his twin sister, who was not harmed.

Bond was set at $150,000 for each.
