    PA - Dad Gives His Infant Some Of His Heroin And Methadone

    Orlando Rosado aged 45 was a dad that got up for 3:00AM feedings. The baby according to mom was a fussy baby. In the morning Rosado awoke to find the infant in the crip in a puddle of vomit.

    Charged with 3rd degree murder. No bail getting lowered despite Rosado saying he must have been so tired when he made the bottle he made a mistake. Considering he's on methadone maintenance and should be clean, but was using an eye dropper of someone elses urine so he could still get his methadone.

    Mom, Crystal Miller has not been charged.


    RIP sweet little one.

    what alarms me why the mother couldn't do the feed? She obviously knew he was under the influence of heroin.

    In all fairness the mom may have not have known he was using as he was still getting his methadone. Maybe they took turns at night feeding.

    Yes, as of the other day he skipped his prelim and he his bail wasn't lowered.

    Christopher was a beautiful little boy. Plenty of photos and his obituary at link.

    Orlando Rosado, Pa. father, gets 15-to-40 years for heroin in bottle that killed infant son, report says


    prosecutor Lorraine Donnelly says the victim died of drug intoxication after his father put heroin and methadone - a drug used to treat heroin addiction - in the infant's bottle. The child died two days before his first birthday.

    Donnelly reportedly said she doesn't believe the defendant intended to kill his son: "I do believe he put those substances in the baby's bottle, in his warped mind, to calm the baby. The baby was a fussy baby, and in his mind it was like Benadryl."..

    Common Pleas Judge Barbara McDermott said she based her verdict in the nonjury trial partly on Rosado’s conduct afterward, when he gave changing statements to police, including an attempt to blame the death on his five-year-old daughter. 'I was appalled when I heard that,' McDermott said...


    The mother, Crystal Miller, 29, who was also in a daily methadone treatment program, said she thought Rosado had been clean since the 2006 birth of their daughter...

    Rosado initially told police that he had no idea what happened, and admitted only in a third interview, after toxicology tests came back, that he had done eight bags of heroin after the boy’s mother went to bed...

    And she described her son as 'always fussy'.

    Defense lawyer Bruce Wolf, perhaps pointing to his defense, asked Miller if people don't get groggy or confused after taking heroin. She agreed that can happen.

    Rosado, who has also been treated for bipolar disorder, attempted suicide after the boy's death.
