Mom Who Murdered 5-Year-Old Son Complains Prison Is ‘Brutal’

Lacey Spears captivated headlines when she was charged with and convicted of murdering her 5-year-old son, Garnett. She had injected a lethal amount of salt into his hospital feeding tube which led to his death. The case is compounded by the fact that she was a “mommy blogger” who made money writing about the ailments her son was going through.  

It is believed that Spears has Munchausen by proxy, which is a condition where parent get attention by making their kids sick. Her mommy blog was dedicated to her son and her role as the dutiful mother sticking by her sick child.


Spears has been opening up to author John Glatt who is writing a book about her murder case. She opened up about life in prison, and what a difficult adjustment that has been for her. Also the the relentless bullying that she is subject to from the other inmates. As most people know, criminals adhere to a code in a jail and they go against people who have committed crimes against children.

At the Bedford Hill prison in Westchester County, New York Spears told Glatt: “It’s been brutal here. Crimes involving children are considered the worst here. I hear them talking behind my back calling me ‘baby killer,’ ‘child killer,’ and ‘mother of the year.’ But I know it’s not who I am.”
