SD Woman In Toddler Death Faces Drug Charges
Laurie Cournoyer

PIERRE, SD -

One of two adults arrested after a 2-year-old girl was found dead in their Wagner home has been charged with possessing drugs.

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley and Charles Mix County States Attorney Pam Hein announced Monday that 29-year-old Laurie Cournoyer, has been charged with possessing methamphetamine, ingesting methamphetamine and possessing unauthorized articles in jail.

Prosecutors say the 2-year-old girl's body was in a closet for nearly two days before Cournoyer and her husband, Taylor, reported her death.

Laurie Cournoyer has also been charged with child abuse and failing to notify law enforcement about a child's death. Those charges are still pending.

Taylor Cournoyer pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine and keeping a place for use or sale of drugs as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors.
