A Summit County woman sought on child abuse charges after she gave birth to a drug-addicted baby has been located.
A $100,000 warrant was issued earlier this month for 27-year-old Shea Renee Sheeran, who gave birth to a boy on Aug. 29 at the Park City Medical Center. Both mother and baby tested positive for drugs and the child began experiencing drug withdrawal symptoms six hours after birth, according to prosecutors.
Sheeran was charged with intentionally inflicting serious physical injury to a child and endangerment of a child, both second degree felonies. She is being held at the Utah State Prison and is slated for a Monday court appearance, said Summit County Attorney David Brickey.
