Local family’s ordeal inspires senate bill


Assistant Editor

An Iota couple wrongfully accused of abusing their infant daughter after she suffered Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) has allied with District 25 Sen. Dan “Blade” Morrish in hopes of preventing more families from experiencing the same injustice.

The Jennings Daily News (JDN) originally shared the story of Jerry and Amanda Spaetgens in Aug. 2012. In Oct. 2011, Jerry discovered their three-month-old daughter, Calli, unresponsive in her crib. He performed CPR and emergency service personnel gave the infant two rounds of epinephrine to restart her heart before she was flown to a hospital.
