Mom Who Killed Her 11-Month-Old Son: “I Just Didn’t Want Him Anymore”

Abortion creates a culture where babies are considered disposable, and here is proof of that.

Detectives say mother Nicole “Nikki” Kelly told them she killed her own baby boy because she had “reached her breaking point.” Now she is in police custody, charged with the second-degree murder of her 11-month-old son, according to affiliates WPIX.

kiamKiam Felix, Jr., was pronounced dead Sunday afternoon after Kelly, 22, brought him into the emergency room with the boy’s father, who does not live with them.

Kelly and her baby boy rented a room from another woman, who also has a two year-old boy and described little Kiam as a happy boy.

Police tell reporters that Kelly wrapped Kiam in a bedsheet so tightly that he couldn’t breathe and then left him alone in his bed for half an hour while she took a shower. But what she did next is particularly gruesome, according to the woman who rented Kelly the room:

She said that she’d seen Kelly on Sunday afternoon with the body of her lifeless baby, just before the baby’s father had come over to take him and Kelly to the hospital. The baby was dressed in a completely white outfit — vest, collared shirt, necktie, pants and socks, identical to the wallpaper photos on Kelly’s Facebook page.

Below that photo banner, Kelly had posted, in part, after her son’s death, “Missing my baby boy so much wish there was some way I could bring him back to life I feel horrible knowing he passed away. Am [sic] his Mother. I was supposed to protect him.”

After she was taken into custody, according to the Queens District Attorney’s Office, she told investigators, “I reached my breaking point, I didn’t want him anymore.”

Two ironies are worth mentioning. It was Kelly’s 22nd birthday on Monday, the same day she was arrested for causing the death the day before. Also, she is currently undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at Elmhurst Hospital, the same facility to which she’d brought her son.

She is currently expected to make a first appearance before a judge on the murder charge on Wednesday. If she is found guilty, she faces a sentence of 25 years to life in prison.
