A Chicago woman is accused of strapping her baby's corpse into a sling and taking him shopping after killing the three-month old in a drunken rage, local media reported on Wednesday.
Ken Blackman Jr had been dead for eight to 14 hours when the women wrapped up her shopping trip and went to visit a neighbour, who noticed blood on the baby blanket and called 911.
Prosecutors told the Chicago Sun Times that Toyrianna Smith, 20, beat and suffocated her baby because he wouldn't stop crying on June 22.
She had been drinking vodka at a friend's house and spent the night in their guest room with the baby. She slipped out of the house the next day before the baby's father came to pick him up.
Smith, 20, is being held in jail on a $1 million bond on charges of first-degree murder. - Sapa-AFP
Good idea Anon... anyone who has a child should be first judged if he or she is fit for this huge responsibility. Its just too easy to have a child, too easy to forgo the responsibility, there are too many people already, but the world is so lost.

Post Natal depression is one thing, being high on drugs on alcohol is something different. When you are a parent, you are always on duty so you shouldn't be drinking. If there are two parents, take it in turns if you have to indulge in alcohol.

Judge and You will be Judged... God has a better plan and purpose in life for all of us. This lady already goes through hell coz her conscience will haunt here untill the day she dies.
You know, a person needs a license to to own a television, let alone drive a car, I think a person should need a license to have a child, honestly, write a series of test, if you fail, hard luck, the way infancy deaths are now, that should be considered.
Hell wouldn't be harsh enough for these people... Anyone who can murder thier own child is truely undeserving of the title mother...
