A demented New York woman is in police custody, charged with murder after authorities say she smothered her 11-month-old son before posting pictures of his dead body on Facebook.
A Queens mom made one of the sickest Facebook status updates ever, posting pictures of her dead baby’s corpse after smothering the helpless tot at bedtime.
Nicole “Nikki” Kelly uploaded an image of 11-month-old Kiam Felix Jr. lying in a white suit and tie with the caption “RIP Tinkabutt,” alongside a picture of his body in a hospital bed.
She also posted a rambling Facebook screed in which she admitted she failed to “protect” the boy.
“Missing my baby boy so much wish there was some way I could bring him back to life,” Kelly wrote. “I feel horrible knowing he passed away. Am his Mother I was supposed to protect him I know his spirit will always be around me . . .”
What Kelly didn’t say was that, according to officials, she had killed the boy Sunday by putting a sheet over his face as she tucked him into bed.
Kelly watched the tot struggle to breathe before callously leaving him alone to die. When she came back a half-hour later, she found him blue and unresponsive, said Queens district attorney Richard Brown, who will prosecute Kelly.
When the boy’s father, Kiam Felix Sr., arrived at the family’s Elmhurst home several hours later, he rushed the boy to Elmhurst Hospital.
Brown said that Kelly, when cops asked why she did it, allegedly said, “I reached my breaking point, I didn’t want him anymore.”
