Mom charged with killing 7-month-old son


A 28-year-old mother of four was arrested Tuesday for the death of her seven-month-old son last year.

Ericka Smith found her infant son, Jacoby Pitts, unresponsive in her apartment at the Edgehill public housing on February 15, 2013.

Pitts was transported to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital where he died two weeks later on March 3.

During their investigation, authorities determined that alleged negligence by Smith led to her baby’s death.

Smith is charged with first degree murder and three counts of aggravated child neglect.

She remains jailed in lieu of a $100,000 bond.
