farmville 385 "Farmville" Blamed For Murder

Authorities say a north Florida mother’s obsession with the Facebook game FarmVille led to her shaking her baby to death. 

Authorities say the mom got upset because the baby started crying while she was playing the game. The Florida Times-Union reports the woman told investigators she shook the boy, smoked a cigarette to compose herself — then shook him again. The woman has pleaded to second-degree murder — and remains jailed. She will be sentenced in December.
