“FarmVille” Interruption Cited in Baby’s MurderA 22-year-old mother from Jacksonville, Florida, has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for shaking her 3-month-old son to death after his crying interrupted her FarmVille game.
The mother, Alexandra V. Tobias, was arrested in January and declared her plea on Wednesday before Circuit Judge Adrian G. Soud, The Florida Times-Union reports.
She told investigators that she shook the baby, smoked a cigarette “to compose herself,” and proceeded to shake him again. The baby may have hit his head during one of the two shaking's, she said.
FarmVille, named one of the “worst inventions” in recent decades by Time magazine, has more than 60 million members, most of whom access the game through Facebook. Some players have found it so addicting that they’ve lost their jobs and racked up debts north of $1,000.
Needless to say, it is Ms. Tobias — and not the game itself — that is responsible for the death of her 3-month-old son.
I don't know whats worse. The actually act itself or the fact this bitch was bold enough to admit she killed her child for a damn Farmville game. They need to put her in a hole, throw dirt over her and walk away. Shame....
