"A 19-year-old Brooklyn woman was charged Tuesday in connection with the death of her 2-year-old son, the latest in a string of suspicious child deaths in New York City investigated by the police.

Emergency responders were called to the woman's apartment in Sheepshead Bay early last Thursday and found the boy, Jayden Smith, vomiting and having difficulty breathing. He was pronounced dead at Maimonides Medical Center.

On Tuesday, the New York City medical examiner's office found that the boy died of blunt force trauma to his abdomen and ruled the death a homicide. His mother, Geraldine Smith, was charged on Tuesday evening with assault, child endangerment and assaulting a person under 7 years of age, police officials said."

From the February 11, 2014 New York Times article, Woman Charged in Death of Her Son, 2, in Brooklyn, by Emma G. Fitzsimmons.

So terrible and sad.
