BROOMFIELD, Colo. - The mother of a Broomfield toddler who died of an apparent drug overdose waived her preliminary hearing Friday afternoon.
Erin Maison-Everhart, 32, faces a charge of child abuse resulting in death.
According to the arrest affidavit, officers were dispatched to 126 Coral Way on a medical call at 6:41 pm on Feb. 18. When they arrived, a relative was performing CPR on Annalise Maison-Chavez who was "pale, blue in color, and did not display any signs of life."
An autopsy of the toddler indicated the cause of death was Oxycodone toxicity. The Adams County Coroner determined she had 1,702 nanograms per milliliter of the substance in her system at the time of her death. The typical dose is 10 to 100 ng.
According to the arrest affidavit, when police searched Maison-Everhart's bedroom they found "Lidoderm patches on the floor, under a nightstand bed," as well as Fentanyl patches kept within a foot of the floor. The report also notes multiple prescription pill bottles in the top dresser drawer.
Multiple family members as well as Maison-Everhart, herself, told police that she does not abuse her medications. When police asked her if there's any chance the toddler could have gotten a hold of any of her medications, the report says Maison-Everhart replied, "Honestly, I don't see how."
The report shows police searched the home again on March 2 and found several bottles of prescription medications including Trazadone, Baclofen, Sertraline and Cyclobenzaprine. When police searched the purse hanging from the dresser drawer, the report shows they found Fentanyl patches, Baclofen, Oxymorphone, Cyclobenzaprine, Oxycodone and Promethazine.
Everhart-Maison is due back in court on Nov. 15 at 8:30 am.
