A Connecticut mother who stank of marijuana told police she was “so excited” after strangling her son and trying to stuff his mouth with CBD gummy candies, court documents show.
An arrest warrant affidavit that was unsealed Tuesday told New London Cops Tiffany Farrauto, 33, that she killed her 4-year-old son David Jasmine in her apartment on March 7, the Hartford Courant reports.
“You can take me with you … because my son is already dead and in the house,” Farrauto said on the affidavit.
Officers found Farrrauto with a broken wiffle ball bat after receiving a report from a woman who crashed a car in a parking lot.
She was “calm in her behavior” when she admitted damaging the car before directing officers to her home, police said.
Farrauto’s son was then spotted on a bed, his face and lips already blue. CBD gums were strewn all over his chest as well as bedding and floor, as the affidavit shows.
The boy, who had cuts on his chest and spots on his neck, was later pronounced dead in a hospital. Farrauto admitted killing her son on the back of a police cruiser, records show.
“I did it,” said Farrauto, without being asked by the officials, the affidavit said. “I [expletive] done! I just killed my son … I’m so excited about it too. I never thought I would do that. “
The woman also told police that she killed her only son to “go back to his mother,” and made numerous references to the Bible while claiming she was sexually assaulted, the affidavit said.
Farrauto, who was charged with the murder and risk of injury to a minor, remains on a $ 2 million bond.
A judge ordered her to spend 60 days in a mental hospital with maximum safety on Tuesday after her first mental health exam found she was unable to stand on trial, the Courant reported.
Farruato, whose court-appointed attorney has recommended declaring her unfit to stand, is due to return to court on May 20, The Day reported.
Last weekend there was a funeral for David Jasmin. Farrauto’s friends have since said that, to the best of their knowledge, she had not been diagnosed with any previous mental illness.
“This is just a shock, I don’t think we’ll ever understand,” Jennifer Ostby told the Courant earlier this month. “Even if she explains it, I don’t think we’ll ever understand. How do you ever understand something like that?”
