Woman accused of beating son to death with part of crib

Mother charged in baby’s death:

25-year-old Lori Beth Workman of Uniontown, Pennsylvania has been charged with criminal homicide in the death of her 3-month-old son Homer.

Back in august the Workman’s called 911 because Homer was being unresponsive. The emergency crew found a pacifier taped to Homer’s mouth. The Workman’s said that was a common practice with Homer.The autopsy revealed that Homer had died from repeated blows to the head.

Just this past Wednesday during police questioning Workman admitted to squeezing the baby and letting his head repeatedly hit the handle of a baby stroller during a walk. She said that she was mad that her husband was not helping with the baby. Then as she was assembling a crib Homer wouldn’t stop crying. That’s when Workman allegedly took a piece of the crib that she was putting together and repeatedly struck Homer in the head. Their older son, Eric Jr., was placed into protective custody after Homer’s death.

Now get this. Workman is now 8 1/2 months pregnant with their 3rd child. If your husband didn’t help with the baby you killed what makes you think this time is going to be different? Now he’ll have no choice as I’m sure mom will be giving birth in prison.
