My 21 year old daughter was married and had an 11 week old son, Skyler.
She had been suffering from postparnum depression, but was not diagnosed and was not on any medications. In a frustrating moment, she was sitting on the couch and tossed her son into a bouncy seat and it dipped over and he bounced out hit his head on a counter and the floor and ended up dying from this injury. Because of his death, my daughter was charged with murder and child abuse leading to death. She was charged with 1st degree murder because in the State of Colorado, this only means you caused a child's death, it does NOT mean you planned it or intended to kill the child.
She is being represented by public attorneys that are busy with 60-80 other cases. I am needing help finding cases and news articles from the United States that may be able to help them in building her defense (i.e. this was more accidental than intentional). My daughter was also adopted from India and was developmentally delayed and academically challenged (which we can show from school reports, etc.).
Without excellent legal representation and valuable legal support/cases to bolster her defense, it is very possible my daughter could go to prison for many decades and even get life without parole.
