The mother of a 9-month-old infant is facing charges after she was accused of putting laxative medication into her child’s IV in an alleged attempt to starve him while he was hospitalized.

Megan Lee Kafer, 25, and her husband have been married for four years and live in Minnesota with their two children.

In July, the Kafers’ son was admitted to the hospital for treatment when he was failing to gain weight and the cause for this was not known.

When a father went to the police department to report that his teenage son had died during a religious fast that the family was on the authorities went to their apartment and the deceased boy’s brother was found alive but starving.

49-year-old Kehinde Omosebi reportedly walked into the Reedsburg police station on Sunday to let them know that his 15-year-old son had passed away in their apartment.

Officers went to the family’s home with Omosebi where they reported that the door had padlocks on the inside. It was also noted that the electricity was not activated, there did not appear to be any food items in sight, and the apartment was very sparsely furnished containing only some folding chairs and a bed.
