    WTH? "administering poison with the intent to endanger life"? The baby DIED, so why isn't this a murder charge?

    I will never understand why killing your baby doesn't net you as much as killing some adult. Injecting a baby with poison is just the same as shooting an adult, IMO. A baby's life shouldn't be treated so cheaply.

    Munchausen by proxy, gone awry, perhaps?

    That is possible, though when an "unnamed man" is associated, I tend to think it was strait-up murder.

    Though the abuse charges seem to fit if they've been watching her file for a while and the baby has had a string of health problems.

    Poor little baby.

    We differ a little in thinking. I think baby murderers should get more time even. Babies are so innocent and cannot defend themselves - at all.

    Yes - and when you kill a baby, you kill so much potential.

    I hate these stories. Why do so many people kill their babies? I mean, killing any baby is unthinkable, but your own...? Completely outside the realm of morality.

    I despair.
