Mom Found Guilty Of Killing 7-Week-Old Baby After Trying To Blame Her Autistic Sons

A mother from Troy, Maine was convicted of manslaughter on Tuesday for the death of her 7-week-old baby, which she allegedly tried to pin on one of her two autistic sons. During her trial, 32-year-old Miranda Hopkins told the jury she drank shots of liquor and smoked marijuana the night the infant Jaxson died, according to Associated Press.

Local reports claim Hopkins gave testimony on Monday, recalling how she found the infant him cold, stiff and unresponsive back in January. She claimed she blacked out and then found Jaxson “beat to hell.” However, she previously told police that one of her two autistic sons was possibly responsible for the infant’s death. She told the jury that she lied because she was afraid her other two sons, ages 6 and 8, would be taken away from her. Those two boys have been described as “profoundly autistic” and nonverbal.
