Grandmother allegedly responsible for baby's overdose found guilty of manslaughter

A Johnson County grandmother has been found guilty in connection with the death of her baby grandson. Alice Stambaugh was charged with manslaughter last year after police say her five-month-old grandson, Draven, died from an overdose of Benadryl and Soma. During the two day trial in Johnson County, Stambaugh's attorney argued she did nothing wrong and instead pointed the finger at her daughter, Heather, the baby's mother. Yesterday afternoon, the jury said otherwise and convicted Alice Stambaugh of 2nd degree manslaughter, and recommended a five year sentence. Heather Stambaugh is also charged, and her trial is scheduled for April.
