    she doesn't even appear to be upset in her mugshot

    maybe she's in shock or more likely she doesn't think she did anything wrong

    You left a 2 year old and a 9 month old in a bathtub and went out?

    You don't have to be the brightest bulb to know that's wrong. I strongly doubt this mom had any idea something so horrific would happen, but the poor little was scalded. Scalded. How did the 2 year old survive? You left a 9 month old alone period let alone in a tub of water with a 2 year old.

    I do not get it. I don't.


    Oh O.K. this explains it. Warning very sad. Mom went to get cigarettes and wings. Only gone 10 minutes. She left the baby in an inch of water. Came home and found him floating face down in hot water with the 2 year old standing by the tub.

    What in the world was she thinking would happen? Why don't these people use their brains?

    RIP sweet baby Erich

    I don't understand what this woman was thinking. My little one turned 4 last month and i am just now comfortable leaving the room for a few minutes while she is in the bath. I would never leave her home alone much less in the tub!!!

    If you really need wings and cigarettes, finish your kid's bath and then take them with you. Come on!

    Mother was hysterical after baby’s scalding death, witnesses say

    http://thesidebar.freedomblogging.c...fter-babys-scalding-death-witnesses-say/6423/

    SNIP:
    Prosecutors have charged the child’s mother, 23-year-old Estella Toleafoa, with first-degree murder in the child’s death, and Miller will decide whether there is enough evidence to bring Tolefoa to trial.

    Police detective Kory Dabb, who tested the water temperature, said hot water flowed from the tub’s faucet at 115 degrees within 10 seconds of being turned on. After running for 2 ½ minutes – the time it would have taken to fill the tub to 5 inches – the water would be 154 degrees, he said.

    Toleafoa, in an orange jail-issue uniform, sobbed loudly when prosecutors displayed photographs of the burned child.

    The boy’s father, Eric Tyler, sat on the opposite side of the courtroom from Toleafoa. He doubled over and cradled his head in his hands, while fellow soldiers comforted him.

    This poor baby :(
