"JACKSONVILLE, Florida -- A north Florida mother has pleaded guilty to shaking her baby to death after the boy's crying interrupted her game on Facebook."

Absolutely horrifying.

Pedaling along a scenic highwa...
A Florida woman admitted shaking her 3-month-old baby to death after the little boy's crying distracted her from playing a wildly popular Facebook game.

Alexandra Tobias, 22, told cops she was playing FarmVille and her baby, Dylan Lee Edmondson, wouldn't stop crying.

According to the Florida Times-Union, she confessed to shaking the baby, smoking a cigarette to calm down and then shaking the baby again. The baby may have hit his head during the January incident.

Tobias pleaded guilty on Wednesday.

The young mom called paramedics after he stopped breathing. He was taken to a hospital with head injuries and a broken leg, The Times-Union reported. Doctors said the infant died from "abusive head trauma."

Tobias initially told police the child hit his head and stopped breathing after a dog knocked him off a couch, Jacksonville television station WJXT reported.

She later confessed to losing her temper while trying to concentrate on the game.

"It was enough to apparently put her over the edge," said Lt. Larry Schmitt of the Jacksonville sheriff's office.

FarmVille is a simulation game created by Zynga, a San Francisco-based company that uses Facebook and other social networks to distribute its games.

In the game, users act as virtual farmers, harvesting crops and raising cattle. The FarmVille Facebook page says the game has nearly 60 million active users.

Tobias faces at least 25 years in prison. She is scheduled to be sentenced in December.

Good thing our failure to value life in this culture isn't having any negative impact.

NM too. No smoking in any building or within 20 feet (I believe that's the number) of an entrance. Smoke free bars too.

I'm hoping they do that in Kentucky. Some cities have, but since tobacco is one of the major crops here it's not likely to be any time soon, I'm sure.

Now this is strange... I tried to send you a PM, but it says I can't because this user is ignoring me. Must be some kind of BOL glitch.

To your point, I'm not saying that this individual isn't 100% responsible for her own actions. The adult who abuses a child may have very well been abused as a child, and that may be an important factor in understanding why they've done so, but it by no means excuses the behavior.

Feel free to send a PM if you'd like to debate this further.

Her crops are definitely going to wither wink

I jest (mainly because I have a warped sense of humor) but I am still saddened by the tragedy.
