An Auburn couple accused of giving their infant son methadone now faces criminal charges.

King County prosecutors say Stacie McKay and Darin Teeters fed their six-week-old baby methadone earlier this month. The boy became very sick and was rushed to Seattle Children's where doctors discovered the poisoning.

The parents said the mother put methadone in the child's milk to help him with withdrawals and pain from his circumcision.

The pair are due in court October 7.
