New York – A woman accused of poisoning her young son with salt has been found guilty of murder. As reported by WebProNews, a New York jury found Lacey Spears guilty of second-degree depraved murder after deliberating for two and a half days.
Prosecutors accuse Spears of seeking attention and sympathy from chronicling the 5-year-old’s illness on social media.
Prosecutor Doreen Lloyd is quoted as stating during the trial, “Although her son was incredibly special, he was not sick–he was not sick until his mother made him sick.”
Lloyd further stated, “Lacey Spears is a calculating child killer who researched, planned and executed the intentional poisoning of her son, Garnett Spears, with salt.”
Spears, who maintained her innocence throughout the trial, will reportedly be sentenced on April 8th.
