NEWNAN — A Georgia mother is in jail without bond after being charged with killing her 20-month-old son.
According to local media reports, the woman admitted that she repeatedly hit her son, Conner Perry, because she was upset about a dirty diaper. The child was vomiting and having trouble breathing shortly after the incident.
The mother, 23-year-old Trinity Pittman, initially told hospital officials the child had fallen off a trampoline, but doctors became suspicious due to the nature of the child’s injuries.
Conner Perry later died at the hospital.
Pittman has been charged with murder and child cruelty.
