The mother of a 9-month-boy revived by Narcan after ingesting fentanyl pleaded not guilty to child endangerment charges Thursday.

The infant was released from the hospital late Wednesday to his mother, 21-year-old Angeline DeJesus, who is facing misdemeanor charges.

Both DeJesus and the baby were released to a different home than where the infant was found unresponsive with a plastic baggie in his mouth on Sunday.

That home, on Roycroft Drive, is where the child’s grandparents, Edaliz Torres and Bartolomeo Blackburn, lived. They’re facing endangerment and criminal drug possession charges.

According to court paperwork, a search warrant of the home uncovered baggies of fentanyl, hypodermic needles, spoons and rubber bands.

DeJesus is scheduled to re-appear in court June 18th.
