A Queens, New York mother is accused of smothering her 11-month-old baby because she "didn’t want him anymore."
Investigators say [Nicole] Kelly told them she had "reached her breaking point" and just didn't want her 11-month old boy anymore. And so, she told police, she wrapped little Kiam Felix, Jr. in a sheet last Sunday so he could no longer breathe. Then, sources say, Kelly proceeded to take a shower and methodically get rid of all her baby's belongings.
Kelly also apparently posted a picture of the baby on her Facebook page with the caption "R.I.P. Tinkabutt."
According to the New York Post and PIX11, that post featured a photo of the baby's dead body, but a spokesperson for the Queens District Attorney's office told The Huffington Post that they were unaware of the photo and could not verify the veracity of those reports.
The Post notes that, in another Facebook post, Kelly expressed regret about her baby's death:
Missing my baby boy so much wish there was some way I could bring him back to life 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 I would never forget my 1st Born he will forever remain in my heart & his family hearts
R.I.P KJ Am not ready O2 say goodbye to you.
Kelly is charged with second-degree murder. If convicted, she faces 25 years in prison.
