Jennifer, a mother of six, is being charged with first-degree criminal abuse in the death of her 10-year-old son, Dominic, who died from an overdose of hydrocodone and sepsis.
Even though Jennifer is a registered nurse, she says she failed to see the signs that her son was seriously ill and did not immediately take him to the hospital, leading to his death. But Dominic is not the only one of Jennifer’s children who has died mysteriously in her family. Years earlier, Jennifer’s 2-month-old son, Ezekial, died from SIDS. What happened the day Dominic died? How did Jennifer miss the signs that her son was seriously ill? And, hear from Jennifer’s husband, Joseph, who is currently incarcerated. What does he have to say about the death of his 10-year-old son?
