Pulaski woman charged with murder

A Pulaski woman has been charged with murder in the Wednesday morning death of her three-year-old son.
Lisa Michelle Hylton, 38, of Mashburn Avenue was arrested at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday on felony charges of child neglect and second-degree murder, according to Pulaski Police Department.
An obituary notice identifies the child as Trevor Kane Hylton.
Police allege Lisa Hylton knew her son had taken a Schedule II drug, but she didn’t seek medical attention for him “over a period of approximately 14 hours.” Her alleged failure to obtain proper medical attention for the child constituted felony neglect, police said.
Authorities are not releasing the type of drug the child ingested until receiving a confirmation from the medical examiner’s office.
Schedule II drugs are drugs that have an accepted medical use, but also carry a high risk of abuse and both physical and psychological dependence. Methadone, oxycodone, and morphine are examples of Schedule II drugs.
Police responded to a residence in the 900 block of Mashburn Avenue at 4:38 a.m. Wednesday upon receiving a report of a child not breathing. Although Sgt. R. D. Rucker was able to get the child to Pulaski Community Hospital within five minutes of the receiving the 911 call, emergency room workers were unable to save him and he was pronounced dead at 5:38 a.m.
