Mom Convicted Of Killing Son, 5, By Poisoning Him With Salt

Mom convicted of killing son, 5, by poisoning him with salt

A woman who blogged for years about her son's constant health woes was convicted Monday of poisoning him to death by force-feeding heavy concentrations of sodium through his stomach tube.

Senh: At the end of the article, the disorder Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome is mentioned. It seems to fit the description of the mother, as described in the story. I'm not sure if she supposedly killed her son because of the disorder or because of the immense stress caused by caring for his illness. Another sad, sad family tragedy.
