Alexandra Tobias shakes her 3-month-old baby, Dylan Lee Edmondson, to death when the infant cried while she was playing FarmVille
In the arrest report, it was Dylan was shaken and his head “could have” been hit against the computer’s monitor according to Tobias. Also according to the arrest report, Dylan suffered from a broken leg as well. Tobias confessed the reason behind the abuse was that Dylan would not stop crying while Tobias played the Facebook game FarmVille and took her frustrations out on her son.
Tobias pleaded guilty and was given a 50 year prison sentence on February 1, 2011.
