Coo-Coo for Farmville

A Jacksonville mother, Alexandra Tobias, has been charged with second-degree murder for the death of her 3-month-old son. Tobias was playing the popular game Farmville on Facebook when the young child began crying. Tobias angrily got up and began to shake the child to make it stop. From the 911 call she thinks he could have hit his head on the computer but she wasn’t sure. She noticed the baby had stopped breathing and that is when she called the authorities.Friends of Tobias say that she was very protective of the child and that she could never have done something like this.

  1. This really is such a sad story. It’s unbelievable that things like this happen. It’s quite timely that you post this now. Just about two hours ago, my roommate saw the story online and showed it to me. I was stunned when she explained to me what happened. Stories like this one really disturb me. Killing a baby because you couldn’t play FarmVille without background noise? I’m floored. Mistakes like this have life long consequences, and it’s just a very sad story any way you look at it. I wonder if there are any other stories similar to this story.
