On February 6, 2012, the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a call concerning the death of a 9 month old child in the 200 block of A Begnaud Road in Lafayette Parish. Toxicology reports from the autopsy of the child revealed lethal levels of two adult pain-killers: Oxycodone and Oxymorphone. Based on interviews with the child’s family members, investigators have charged 30-year-old Christina Menard with second-degree murder of her 9 month old infant. Menard is being held at the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center awaiting bond. The investigation is continuing at this time.
