Mom shook baby for interrupting her gametime - guess the state and the game

By David Hunt

A Jacksonville mother charged with shaking her baby to death has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

Alexandra V. Tobias, 22, was arrested after the January death of 3-month-old Dylan Lee Edmondson. She told investigators she became angry because the baby was crying while she was playing a computer game called Farmville on the Facebook social-networking website.

Tobias entered her plea Wednesday before Circuit Judge Adrian G. Soud. A second-degree murder charge is punishable by up to life in prison.

Prosecutor Richard Mantei said Tobias' sentence could be less because of state guidelines that call for 25 to 50 years. Soud offered no promises on what he'll order during a sentencing hearing scheduled for December.

Outside the courtroom, Mantei said Tobias' plea will help avoid the family reliving the tragedy during a jury trial.

Tobias told investigators that she shook the baby, smoked a cigarette to compose herself and then shook him again. She said the baby may have hit his head during the shaking.

I've said it before; these farming games lead to violence!

I guessed the state, but I was wrong about the game. I figured her for a Sims fan.

I can't believe people still don't know that shaking babies can easily kill them. Or that someone would shake their baby, have a cigarette to compose themselves and then go right back to baby-shaking.

Her crops had withered. Can you really blame her?

This makes me want to jump off a bridge. People that want babies can't have them and half the people that DO have them are complete fucking worthless pieces of shit.

I shouldn't laugh but this is pretty funny.

And on a sidenote, Frontierville is better than Farmville

They need a new Surgeon General warning.

Shaking babies is not a safe alternative to cigarette smoking.

Does this qualify as a Darwin Award runner up?

She's not dead, or in danger of dying because of her stupidity. She's just garden-variety dumb.

Only if she shook her own head to death.

I thought Florida and an NBA game with the Miami Heat, not a videogame.

I guessed World of Warcraft, then realized the chances of having a child and playing that game are slim
