According to the County Attorney's Office, the child was born with neurological problems because of prenatal exposure to marijuana and cocaine, but Perri had stopped taking her to scheduled doctor appointments. She weighed just 14 pounds when she died of malnutrition.

Just weeks before, Perri took out a $14,000 life-insurance policy in the child's name, according to the Attorney's Office. The insurance company refused to pay when it learned how Nakeisha died.
