She is charged with criminal homicide, accused of putting a lethal dose of the pain killer Vicodin in her 2-year-old’s sippy cup.

On Aug. 25, police found Clarey in a bed with the body of her son inside their Tullytown Home. Court documents say the boy’s body was cold to the touch, and she had what appeared to be self-inflicted wounds to her wrists.

Clarey has a formal arraignment scheduled for Jan. 18 in Doylestown.
