Mom, boyfriend gave baby marijuana after she broke her leg, police say

A mother and her boyfriend were arrested in Indiana on Monday for allegedly giving a 10-month-old girl marijuana after she broke her leg, police said.

Tessa Rose Murray, 23, and her boyfriend Nerrell McCoy, 20, allegedly gave her infant daughter the drug to ease her pain, the Muncie Police Department told The Star Press.

Murray's baby was transported to IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital on June 18 to treat her "dislocated femur fracture." Police were notified of the incident after the baby was hospitalized, the arrest affidavit stated.

Kris Swanson, an investigator for Muncie Police Department, said Murray initially stated the baby broke her leg after falling from a couch. She later changed her story and said another child pulled on the infant's leg while she was falling from a bed.
