28 Oct 2010

A 22-year-old woman from Florida has pleaded guilty for shaking her baby son to death after he interrupted her while she was playing FarmVille.

Alexandra Tobias was annoyed by the baby crying while she was playing the social game made by Zynga, and allegedly started to shake the baby in frustration.

Tobias said she set the baby down on the couch and smoked a cigarette in order to calm herself down.

According to Florida state guidelines, she could face life imprisonment for this act. The hearing will take place in December.
