    It sure does take a long time to get through some of these court systems. Her trial should have been sometime in the summer of 2009, at least! It has been a year and 4 months since she was arrested. WOW!

    That's one hell of a mistake to make IMO!

    From that article
    "Medical examiners said the baby died of suffocation and showed signs of previous abuse.

    According to court documents Tunnell told three people she had caused the injuries to the baby"

    also: "The medical examiner report shows the baby died of suffocation and had a healing broken rib.

    Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland said in April that Tunnell later admitted to shaking the baby.

    Wonder what changed their mind, it appears that the baby was abused by the mother.

    I thought maybe LE had interviewed her for hours and hours and pressured her, and she was probably already feeling the guilt that all mother feel when their baby dies.
