A 22-year-old woman from Jacksonsville, Florida, has pleaded guilty to killing her baby son over a game of... FarmVille.
Alexandra V. Tobias says her three-month-old child, Dylan Lee Edmondson, had been crying while she was trying to play the popular Facebook casual game. This angered Tobias, who told authorities that she shook the baby, had a cigarette to calm herself down, then shook him again. It's believed he "may have hit his head during the shaking".
Dylan's death was classified as second-degree murder, a charge that carries the possibility of a life sentence in prison.
