A Louisiana mother and grandmother were charged with murder on Friday after they forced a four-year-old girl to drink half a bottle of whiskey, as punishment for taking a sip.

Roxanne Record, 53, and her daughter Kadjah Record, 28, were each booked into the East Baton Rouge parish prison following the death of Kadjah’s daughter China from acute alcohol poisoning.

The little girl had a blood alcohol level of .068 more than eight times the .08 legal limit for people over 21 to drive when she died.

Police were called to the home in the Windsor Place area of Baton Rouge on Thursday morning, to reports of an unresponsive child.

On arriving at the home, on Wallis Street and Harco Drive, they were told by China’s siblings that the grandmother was angry because the little girl had taken a sip of the Canadian Mist whiskey, left on the counter.

As a punishment, the child was told to kneel on the floor and finish off the remaining half of the bottle.

Kadjah Record watched as her daughter was forced to drink the liquor, which gave her a blood alcohol content of .680.

Drivers in the state of Louisiana are considered legally drunk when their BAC is .08 or more. 

Roxanne Record told investigators at the scene that ‘she messed up’ and ‘wanted to take full responsibility’ for the child’s death. 

The grandmother also reportedly said ‘this went too far.’ 

She added that she had ‘ruined everyone’s lives,’ according to WAFB.
