Erin Piche-Pitts, 25, has been charged with aggravated manslaughter in the death of her infant in Florida, NY Daily News reports.
In October, Piche-Pitts took her crying baby out of his bassinet and put him next to her in bed. When she woke up, he was dead.
It’s not the first time it’s happened to her. She lost another baby in 2009 due to co-sleeping. The death was ruled accidental asphyxia “due to probable overlay and co-sleeping.”
At the time, Piche-Pitts was counseled about the dangers of co-sleeping.
Piche-Pitts has a long criminal record, including previous arrests for domestic violence, battery, larceny, burglary, interference with child custody, fraud, meth possession and paraphernalia charges.
