Two Arizona on-air reporters are facing drug and child abuse charges after their baby tested positive for cocaine.
Krystin Lisaius and Somchai Lisaius, who both worked in Tuscon's local media, were indicted on charges of possession of a dangerous drug, drug paraphernalia and child abuse on June 9.
According to a police report, the parents hosted a party on May 14 and both consumed cocaine.
The next morning, Krystin Lisaius breast fed their four-month-old daughter. After she became lethargic, they took the girl to the hospital, where she tested positive for cocaine.
The two each pleaded not guilty at an initial appearance on Monday.
Krystin Lisaius worked at KGUN and Somchai Lisaius was a longtime reporter for KOLD. It appears they don't work at those stations anymore.
The child is expected to make a full recovery. She is now staying with a relative.
