Mom Kills Her Toddler While on Facebook

Shannon Johnson, 34, of Fort Lupton, Greeley, Colorado was sentenced Friday to 10 years behind bars by District Judge Thomas Quamen for being negligent of her son, Joseph who is left all alone in the bath tub while she was busy playing games on the Facebook.

The court records stated: "Johnson put her son in the tub for his bath a little after 8:30 a.m. on Sept.20. She then left him unsupervised as she went to another room to share videos, check status updates and play Cafe World on Facebook.

"When she returned to the bathroom, she found Joseph sideways and face-down in the water.

"Johnson called 911 to say Joseph wasn't breathing. Paramedics were able to revive the toddler but he was pronounced dead at a Denver hospital."
On her affidavit, Johnson told police that her son "wanted to be left alone" and was a very "independent  baby." She also did not want him to be known as a "mama's boy."

She further said she gave the boy a bath every day — sometimes twice a day. She said that on the day Joseph died, the water level might have been higher than usual. In fact, she had been leaving Joseph in the bathtub alone for weeks.

On January 3, the final autopsy report of Joseph was released. The report said the baby died of anoxic brain injury, cardiac arrest and drowning.

However before the baby's drowning, Johnson was warned by her mother of the danger of leaving the toddler unattended in water and she replied not to do it anymore, told Weld Country Undersheriff to media.

Johnson pleaded guilty in March to negligently causing the death of her child.
