    A northern Kentucky man has been charged with reckless homicide in the death of his 2-month-old grandson.
    David Cull, 50, of Campbellsburg was arrested on Thursday following the death of his grandson, Xavien Cull.
    A preliminary investigation by state police determined the infant was killed when David Cull sat on a chair, crushing the baby who was on it.
    "The infant had been placed somehow in a soft cushion chair, and the suspect allegedly, in an apparent intoxicated state, sat down in the chair where the infant was laying and passed out in the chair," Detective Steve Goodale of Kentucky State Police told WLKY.com.
    Investigators said it's unclear how long Cull stayed on the infant, who was deceased when police arrived. Autopsy results are pending.
    Police are also awaiting results of a toxicology report on David Cull. Investigators said he may have been intoxicated on prescription medication at the time. more: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,331234,00.html

    How intoxicated can you be to not notice a baby underneath you in a chair?

    I remember when my child was that young. I wouldn't have placed her on any high surface without a hand on her, much less walking away and not noticing if someone sat down on her. I wonder what it was like in that house?

    I think you would have to be pretty darn drunk ...

    "David and Donna Marie Cull had custody of Xavian and his 5-year-old half-sister, WLKY.com reports."

    So who gave these people custody and how badly did they treat their own child (parent of these two) and yet THEY get custody??????

    For the love of Mike. Ya know? I'm guessing he wasn't the only person there that was whacked out of his mind. Where's his wife at? Did she put the baby on the chair? Did he put the baby there? Ya know? People.

    He already has completed a drug program.

    As part of the plea agreement, Cull must continue with mental health treatment.

    CAMPBELLSBURG - The grandmother of a 2-month-old infant, who was killed after police said his grandfather sat on him, has been arrested.

    Donna Cull, 52, of Campbellsburg, was arrested on charges of reckless homicide and tampering with physical evidence. Cull had custody of the infant and his 5-year-old half-sister.

    snip

    When a family member woke Cull out of the chair around 5 a.m. that day, Xavian was unconscious and unresponsive. But, police were not called until around 7:30 a.m.

    Child Protective Services came and took the 5-year-old girl and placed her with other relatives.

    snip

    Now, three months later, the police have arrested Donna Cull on charges similar to her husband's charges. Trooper Seth Willis said Friday in a telephone interview that Cull was arrested as a result of a court proceeding. Officials felt Donna Cull was "equally culpable and responsible" in the death of her grandson, Willis said.

    Going to look for sentencing information on grandma, but I'm sure it's much the same or less.

    I'm not finding any information on Donna Cull beyond the arrest, so charges may have been dropped.

    I have got to question the wisdom of CPS here. The little girl has already been through 2 relatives in this family and now she has been given to a 3rd? Is this really a good idea? I think not.
