Mom Charged After A 2nd Baby Dies

The woman has an extensive history of run-ins with the law. Her most recent arrest was for possession of meth. She was pregnant at the time.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office provided WFTS with the dates and various reasons for Piche-Pitts’ arrests.

May 10, 2005 – Arrested by WHPD for Battery Domestic Violence
April 4, 2010 – Arrested by WHPD for Aggravated Battery
August 14, 2011 – Arrested by PCSO for Battery Domestic Violence
October 29, 2012 – Arrested by WHPD for Larceny
April 14, 2013 – Arrested by PCSO for Failure to Appear, VOP
November 21, 2013 – Arrested by WHPD for Battery Domestic Violence
February 9, 2014 – Arrested by PCSO for Burglary, Larceny
May 6, 2014 – Arrested by WHPD for Interference With Child Custody, Fraud
July 16, 2016 (while pregnant) – Arrested by PCSO for Possession of Meth, Paraphernalia

Given that this is a repeat newborn death, Piche-Pitts is now charged with aggravated manslaughter.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said that because Piche-Pitts received “multiple warnings on the dangers of co-sleeping and multiple face-to-face counseling sessions,” there was probable cause to charge her.

“This lady doesn’t get it,” Sheriff Grady Judd said, according to Fox 13. “This is a very, very sad situation that these children died.”

Police said Piche-Pitts assured her doctor she would not co-sleep with her newborn.
