*Shocked social media posts are not buying the fact that a Queens, New York woman of 22, who smothered her own child and posted pictures of his body on Facebook, is remorseful.
The woman wrapped her 11-month-old son in a sheet that made it impossible for him to move or breathe – then she went off to take a 30-minute shower and when she came back, the baby had turned blue.
She has been identified as Nicole “Nikki” Kelly in a PIX 11 report and in a plot-thickening story, we later learn she killed her baby simply because she didn’t want him anymore, according to the Queens District Attorneys office.
Kelly is now in police custody and has been charged with the second-degree murder of little Kiam Felix, Jr., her son, who was pronounced dead at Elmhurst Hospital Sunday after his father brought him to the emergency room. Neither family nor friends can wrap their brain around why she would something like this. And people are even angry that this is another child murder that professionals are trying to blame on mental illness.
Kelly lived with her son in a rented room in the home of a woman who declined to speak about the shocking revelation except to say that the boy was a “happy baby.” The boy’s father did not live with them.
The Queens District Attorney’s Office said Kelly told investigators, “I reached my breaking point, I didn’t want him anymore.”
On Monday, the day she celebrated her 22nd birthday, Kelly, who worked as a home health aide, posted several pictures of her baby on her Facebook page saying how she missed him.
