ST. JOSEPH CO. - A St. Joseph County mother pleaded guilty to charges that arose from the death of her son on Friday.

Daniel Shepherd died just hours after his 15th birthday, in April 2007. Prosecutors say his mom, Teresa Kleine, allowed him to smoke marijuana, and afterward he got sick and died.

Investigators later discovered Shepherd really died from a methadone overdose, and say his mother didn't know Daniel had used her prescription.

Prosecutors dropped a manslaughter charge, and Kleine pleaded guilty to child abuse and marijuana charges.

Why doesn't the title of the story read "Methadone death"? The reporter and editor knew the truth. I wonder if they want to incite "letters to the editor"> Mikey

University educated prosecuting lawyers thought it reasonable that smoking
marijuana causes death? That is why manslaughter charges were laid on her? Ya frickin' right. What a frickin' joke. Too bad the joke's at her expense, what a price to pay for someone's sick sense of humour.

Was this person convicted of child abuse because she let him smoke marijuana? Is that what is considred child abuse? Or did she hit her child?

What is clear from the article is...smoking marijuana causes death and to witness someone doing that is abuse.

Marijuana Death? No such thing!

Methadone death? Yep, that happens.

Who's in charge of that paper's headline division? \:P

My wonderful home state of Michigan. St Joseph is a close minded racist community.

They have edited their headline, thankfully.

Woman convicted in son's death

That poor woman. Convinced she killed her son and then the prosecutors jumped on it and mashed in the guilt. She will never be the same. \:\(

Why didn't she keep her Methadone locked up safely? Thats poor judgement around a teen who probably likes to experiment with things.

Cannabis continues to have a "zero" deaths due to overedose record.

Another way to keep their ignorant hypes. Atleast they edited it, they should have added that Cannabis doesn't contain the chemicals to be able to overdose in the first place. It still sucks she got child abuse charges when the kid was stealing drugs behind her back. If she had methadone for chronic pain, why not do away with that and just have a lot of good herb?
