Conover mom faces abuse charges

February 3, 2012

A Conover woman faces child abuse charges after police said she was seen tampering with her infant daughter's intravenous line at a Charlotte hospital.

The Charlotte Observer reports Charlotte-Mecklenburg police responded to Carolinas Medical Center (CMC) after hospital staff saw Ladonna Kaye Parlier, 26, injecting a substance into her 5-month-old daughter's IV line.

Police said they caught Parlier on surveillance video abusing her child.

Detectives said she pulled a syringe from her daughter, Naomi's, IV line, then injected an "unknown substance" into the IV.

Police are testing the IV line and the bag.

Police told the Observer that a joint investigation with the Department of Social Services revealed that Parlier had previously abused her daughter "on several occasions."

Parlier is charged with five counts each of felony child abuse and misdemeanor child neglect. She was arrested and jailed Thursday with her bail set at $137,500.

Police said assistance from hospital staff aided an investigation. Parlier's daughter remains at CMC in stable condition.
