A California mother is being accused of homicide after the simple act of breastfeeding turned tragic. On November 4, officers from the San Jose Police Department responded to a call of two unconscious 8-month-old twins, Melani and Zari, at a residence in San Jose, California.

The SJPD explained in a press release on Friday:  The following day, Melani was pronounced dead. According to the release, homicide detectives with the Santa Clara County Severe Child Injury and Death team opened an investigation into the incident, learning that Celina Juarez, mother of the twins, was caring for them at the time of the incident.

However, in the “preliminary stages,” of said investigation, Juarez had to be hospitalized for an “unknown medical emergency.” This delayed the legal action until November 16 when she was released, and on that same day, charged with homicide.
