Mother Kills Infant for Interrupting Her FarmVille Game

“On Wednesday, Alexandra V. Tobias pled guilty to second degree murder for shaking her baby to death.

At the time of her arrest in January, 22-year-old Tobias reportedly told police that she was playing FarmVille on Facebook and got angry when the three-month-old Dylan Lee Edmondson began to cry.

According to the Florida Times-Union, “Tobias told investigators that she shook the baby, smoked a cigarette to compose herself and then shook him again. She said the baby may have hit his head during the shaking.”

A judge heard Tobias’s plea on Wednesday and will issue her sentence at a December hearing. Tobias could face the rest of her life behind bars, the Times-Union reports.

There have been several instances in which authorities believe children suffered due to their parents’ unhealthy gaming habits. Earlier this year, a Korean couple was convicted of letting their child starve to death while they raised a virtual baby online. In September, a mother was banned from using computers after her she neglected her children and let the family dogs starve because of her “obsession” with a game.”

    America is mentally ill and dying. Its a crying shame. Ive also seen too many mothers either neglect or abuse their children, its not always men.

      Hi Andre’. Not only is it not always men, I think there is a good chance that women abuse and neglect their children more than men do –or at least at the same rate.

      And you’re right, America IS mentally ill and dying.
