Charlotte woman charged in overdose of 9-month-old grandson

A Charlotte woman has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the fatal overdose of her 9-month-old grandson.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police investigators charged Charlene Workman, 48, on Tuesday. Her arrest followed a medical examiner’s report that indicated Workman’s grandson, Kaleb Lowery, died July 22 from an overdose of two drugs.

The infant was found in a home on the 9500 block of Lina Ardrey Lane, then transported to CMC-Pineville, where he was pronounced dead.

Workman remained in custody Tuesday night at the Mecklenburg County Jail.
