Two Parents Allegedly Fatally Fed 2-Year-Old Oxycodone

Two parents in Milwaukee are charged with allegedly killing their 2-year-old just three days before her third birthday.

Margarita Balderas and Darrell Woodson are both charged with second degree reckless homicide.

On August 13, 2016 their child died, and on February 12, 2017 Milwaukee Police received word Margarita’s other children were in foster care. After being placed in foster care, her children reported drug abuse allegedly by Balderas and Woodson during the time of London’s death.

On February 16, a representative from Child Advocacy Center interviewed one of the children.

The child disclosed the defendants would allegedly break off pieces of oxycodone and give the pills to London so she would sleep. After London would take the pill, the defendants allegedly said “yay, good job!”

On the day the child died, the two allegedly left the 2-year-old with a sibling to sell drugs.
