(Newser) – An Albuquerque mom has confessed to police that she killed her toddler son—twice—and buried his body in a playground. She suffocated 3-year-old Ty, then changed her mind and used CPR to revive him before deciding again to suffocate him, Tiffany Toribio told detectives. She killed him because she "didn't want him to grow up with no one caring about him, the same way that she had grown up," said a police spokesman.
