Authorities say a Queens woman posted a photo of her dead child on Facebook after smothering him.
According to Gothamist, Nicole Kelly, 22, was officially arraigned yesterday for killing her 11-month-old son, Kiam Felix, Jr., on Sunday night .The New York Post reports that Kelly told police she covered the boy with a bedsheet that night, then showered for 30 minutes. She returned to find him "unresponsive," then neglected to call 911.
Instead, she told police that she "cleaned out all of his stuff from the apartment and dressed him in [a] suit." The caption on the Facebook photo read "RIP Tinkabutt."
Kelly's explanation is that she "snapped," and was "done being [Felix's] only caretaker." After undergoing psychiatric evaluation at Elmhurst Hospital, Kelly is being held without bail.
