MILTON, Fla. (AP) — A Florida Panhandle couple have been sentenced to 10 years in prison for letting their toddler drink a drain cleaner commonly used in making methamphetamine.
Local media outlets report that 24-year-old Amber Nicole Cooley and 27-year-old Kyle Joseph Cooley were sentenced last week after pleading no contest to multiple drug and child abuse charges.
Authorities say their 3-year-old child was airlifted from their Milton home to a Pensacola hospital in December after drinking the strong acid from a sippy cup and suffering severe burns to the face, neck, mouth and chest.
