Kingwood mother charged after baby born in toilet, authorities say
HOUSTON – A Kingwood mother is accused of giving birth to her son in a toilet and failing to get him medical attention.
Stephanie Annette Brock, 21, of Mulberry Grove Drive, is charged with injury to a child.
Court documents allege that Brock gave birth in a toilet and didn’t seek treatment for her son’s injuries.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office told KPRC the baby boy was born on March 1, and the alleged incident was reported on March 17. The baby had an illegal substance in his system, according to law enforcement.
Authorities claim in court documents that Brock took opiates and marijuana before the baby was born.
The baby is still alive, Harris County authorities say.
Brock was arrested Tuesday. Her bail is set at $35,000.
