    Mom puts Prozac in girl's applesauce
    Police: Mom Fed Daughter Applesauce Spiked With Prozac
    Authorities: Woman Said She Was Trying To Help Girl Sleep

    GREENWOOD, Ind. -- A Greenwood woman told investigators she gave her 12-year-old daughter applesauce spiked with Prozac for about six months without a doctor prescribing the drug to the girl, police said.

    Karen S. Walsh, 51, was charged with felony neglect after admitting Wednesday she gave the girl the drug to help her sleep, the Johnson County Sheriff's Department said.

    According to a probable cause affidavit, Walsh told officers that the child had trouble sleeping and that Walsh therefore administered the drug using her own prescription beginning in April.


    Walsh told officers, "I knew the doctor would tell me to stop," when asked why she didn't seek medical care for the girl, according to the probable cause affidavit. "I was just trying to help her sleep and I guess I should not have done it."
