Croton-On-Hudson Mother Charged in Daughter’s Death

On Wednesday Croton-On-Hudson mother Kathleen Dymes was seen in court for the first time since she was arrested in April for the death of her six-year old daughter Lacey Carr. On Easter Sunday police responded to Dymes’ address and discovered the young girl’s body in a bedroom with her unconscious mother, and Benadryl, valium, oxycodone, morhpine, heroin, and open alcohol containers. Most of the drugs were over the counter, the morphine was prescribed to Carr’s father David Carr who live at a separate address. Dymes was charged with negligent homicide, authorities stating that the mother created an unsafe environment for her daughter, who was found to have died from an overdose caused by high levels of Benadryl in her system. Dymes pleaded not guilty to the charge of negligent homicide as well as misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and criminal possession of a controlled substance for which she faces up to four years in prison if found guilty. The woman was released on $25,000 bail and remains in a rehab facility.
