A baby girl who was admitted to hospital was later found to have been poisoned with ice - and police allege she was fed the illicit drug by her father!
The NSW father from Albury will face court today accused of contaminating his baby's dummy with ice.
Detectives from the State Crime Command's Child Abuse Squad launched an investigation after staff at Albury Base Hospital alerted authorities.
Police were informed the four-month-old was admitted to the hospital in late October with an 'unknown' illness.
Pathology tests revealed the baby had amphetamine and methylamphetamine, or 'ice', in her system.
The man was charged with use of poison to endanger life or inflict grievous harm.
Police will allege in court that the man recklessly administered ice to the child by contaminating her dummy.
He was refused bail in Albury Local Court today.
