A Hanford woman accused of murder after delivering a stillborn baby with toxic levels of meth in his system was arrested Wednesday morning, according to Hanford Police.
Local law enforcement received a tip that Chelsea Cheyenne Becker, 25, was possibly sighted in the Lemoore area, Lt. Greg Freiner said. Officials located surveillance video showing Becker in the area of the Tachi Palace Casino in Lemoore.
‘The levels of methamphetamine in this baby’s system were such high levels, even for an adult, so we believe that she was using almost the entire time that she was pregnant,’ Detective Sgt. Justin Vallin of the Hanford Police Department told KGPE.
Cops say Becker admitted to using meth during her pregnancy right up until just a few days before giving birth.
