Tobias was arrested after the January death of 3-month-old Dylan Lee Edmondson.   (Duval County)

(Newser) – A Florida woman who killed her baby when his crying interrupted work on her virtual farm on Facebook has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. Alexandra Tobias, 22, told investigators that she shook her 3-month-old baby boy because he was crying as she played Farmville, the Times-Union reports. She may have hit his head on the computer during the shaking, she told the court. Tobias shook him once, had a cigarette, then shook him again, she recounted. She faces a minimum of 25 years in prison, and could get life. (Click here for another—odder, but less tragic—Facebook-related crime.)
