This story does not add up. If the baby went to sleep at 8, is the State saying that the mom woke up in the middle of the night to beat her child?! Please - stop prosecuting innocent people!

Do either of you have kids? 13 month old kid wakes up in the middle of the night screaming for Mom (happens all the time). Mom gets pissed when she can't get kid back to sleep. She gets even more angry if the 2 yer old gets woken up. She gives the kid flying lessons around the room in her rage, and the kid is injured beyond belief. It's not a story that hasn't happened before. Get real and stop assuming a 23 year tired mother can't possibly snap under stress. Remove the 2 year old from her care now.

you must be bling woman is very right. some women are like that doesnt mean we should point a finger at her for saying a lot of women do this i'd never its disgusting. and for the rest of you family or not you should be ashamed,

"thank you i am family. she is innocent and the state is trying to make a bigger deal out of this then it is to get the press. there is more to this story then what has come out. their is alot of facts that are in correct"

seriously lady do you think a medical examiner would lie and make up some stange story, SHE KILLED HER OWN CHILD! how much of an Idiot are you. this is abuse and this woman deserves to be in jail for a long time.
quote-
"During an autopsy, state medical examiners found that the extent of the injuries were not consistent with the claim. The injuries were traumatic and included multiple contusions, lacerations, internal bleeding and hemorrhages on top of the baby’s head. The medical examiner ruled death was a homicide caused by blunt force trauma.

“This defendant is alleged to have beaten her own child with such severity that the violent nature and broad scope of his injuries were fatal,” District Attorney Gerry Leone said in the press release.“I commend the Massachusetts State Police assigned to our office and the Acton Police for their diligent work in investigating the circumstances of little Kaydn’s death, and arresting the defendant.”

For the family member, Do you think this is from a baby falling from a crib or hitting its head on a side of a table ( they do hurt themselves)This woman killed her baby family or not thats a living being. if i were to do this id go to jail and be disowned by my family. You cant place a cover up on the facts sorry this woman and all women like her should fucking be in jail for life.

Looks like you could use some help with your reading comprehension. The poster you refer to was explaing to the two previous posters that this woman is guilty by giving a theoretical scenario of how it could have happened. He or she did not state they beat their own kid, wow! Just wow!

I agree that this injury could have happened in the middle of the night like described above, but what if it happened earlier in the night.

My own kids have falled out of cribs when trying to climb out, however it never resulted in traumatic injury. The injuries described sound like a severe beating. This mother deserves to go to jail for a very long time. The family doesn't know what goes on beind closed doors.

ummm I think what they are saying is the mother stated the baby went to bed at 8, probably already having been beaten, either that or the baby woke her up in the middle of the night and she was mad so she beat him....not everything is cut and dry

I know it looks bad and perhaps she did do this. Everyone is believing what she said about putting the baby to bed around 8... in some reports it was 9:30. If people are believing this then why not that she did not do it. She claims she was the only one home during the night... IF that it true then surely she IS guilty of this horrific crime. BUT if she really wasn't home alone she needs to start talking already because she damn well knows exactly what happened or just accept that she will be spending her young adult life in prison! Let's keep in mind that the father of Kaydn was no where around for his son's funeral services. He nor she weren't down at the police station searching for justice for their poor son. That's just not right! IT doesn't make since and as Judge Judy would say if it doesn't make since then it's not true!

This scenario is not unheard of, having been in similar situations in the past the rage can grow so fast, it's an awful beyond sad shame. So much self control is needed to handle those times and get through each night. Not defending, but also saying it can't be assumed the police are making things up either.
