West Bend - A West Bend woman has been charged with physical abuse of a child after her 2-year-old daughter ate two LSD-laced candies the woman allegedly purchased and brought back to their apartment.
According to a criminal complaint filed Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court:
The mother, Donielle M. Maki, 23, and a friend, Valerie J. Anderson, 19, went to a house in the 500 block of Oak St. in West Bend on Tuesday and bought 10 drug-laced candies that looked like SweeTarts for $7 each from a man at the house. Maki told investigators she bought the LSD for her cousin.
After buying the drugs, Maki went home, put her 2-year-old daughter to bed and then "passed out" on the couch in the apartment.
When she woke up Wednesday at about 9 a.m., her daughter was sitting on the floor near her Care Bears couch and said, "I like these, Mommy" and had one of the drug-laced candies in her hand. Maki saw only eight pieces of candy left and knew her daughter had eaten two of them.
