Hilaria Baldwin’s father died of a heroin overdose: Court documents
A Florida man who says his estranged wife’s father overdosed on heroin while pregnant has been charged with first-degree murder in his estranged father’s death.
Hilaria Baldwin, 28, pleaded not guilty in federal court to the charge of second-degree felony murder, according to court records.
The indictment is the first criminal case against Baldwin in Broward County, where she lives.
Baldwin is accused of killing her father, James Baldwin, in an early December 2015 shooting at their home in the Miami suburb of Coral Gables.
James Baldwin died from a single gunshot wound to the back.
Hilary Baldwin was a former girlfriend of the victim’s father, Charles Baldwin, who died in 2012.
Charles Baldwin was also a father of two young children, according the FBI.
Hildegard Baldwin told police James Baldwin had taken drugs at the home, according a probable cause affidavit.
James and Hilary Baldwin were married in 2011 and were living in Florida at the time of their father’s overdose.HILARY BLAIR, HILARY BALDWIN, AND THEIR FRIENDS IN FEDERAL COURT CHARGED WITH FIRST-DEGREE MURDER IN FIRST-DOCTOR-ABUSE MURDERSHildefan Baldwin’s parents, Charles and Hilaries, were divorced in 2013 and divorced in 2018.
Hilda Baldwin’s family has not been named in court records, but her mother told the Miami Herald in March 2017 that she is “very upset” that the charges against her daughter were filed.
