Lebanon, Indianna - Elizabeth A. Fairfield, 38, was indicted on Friday for the alleged murder of her 14-year-old daughter, Brittany, who had Down syndrome and died last year from a drug overdose. The manner of Brittany's death, according to the Indy Star, is yet to be determined. A grand jury deliberated for more than three hours before handing down the murder indictment. Ms. Fairfield is being held without bail in the Boone County Jail and faces up to 65 years in prison if convicted.
