NY mom accused of killing 11-month-old son admits, ‘I didn’t want him anymore’

QUEENS, N.Y. — Detectives say New York mother Nicole “Nikki” Kelly told them she killed her own baby boy because she had “reached her breaking point” and because she “didn’t want him anymore.”

Kelly is charged with second degree murder of her 11-month-old son, Kiam.

Kiam was pronounced dead at Elmhurst Hospital on Sunday afternoon after Kelly, 22, brought him into the emergency room with the boy’s father.

Kelly and her son did not live with the boy’s father, but instead rented a room from another woman.

WPIX reported that Kelly’s housemate said that she’d seen Kelly on Sunday afternoon with the body of her lifeless baby, just before they went to the hospital.

The baby was dressed in a completely white outfit — vest, collared shirt, necktie, pants and socks, identical to the wallpaper photos on Kelly’s Facebook page.

Police say the woman who has worked as a home health aide wrapped her baby so tightly in a bed sheet Sunday that he couldn’t breathe or move.

She left him alone on the bed for a half hour, while she showered. After he turned blue, Kelly called the boy’s father, who took them to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead early Sunday evening.

After she was taken into custody, according to the Queens District Attorney’s Office, she told investigators, “I reached my breaking point, I didn’t want him anymore.”

        I’m not sure why this wasn’t 1st degree either. In most cases, it requires “aforethought” or premeditation for 1st degree and if she dressed the child as they reported she did, that certainly indicates there was premeditation.

        So if you understand legal matters so well, why don’t you explain it to the rest of us. Yes, we will wait until you go look it all up, because you don’t have a clue.

      • secondamendmentman

        Assuming you can read FaithC
        A person is guilty of murder in the second degree when:
        1. With intent to cause the death of another person, he causes the
        death of such person or of a third person; except that in any
        prosecution under this subdivision, it is an affirmative defense that:
        (a) The defendant acted under the influence of extreme emotional
        disturbance for which there was a reasonable explanation or excuse, the
        reasonableness of which is to be determined from the viewpoint of a
        person in the defendant’s situation under the circumstances as the
        defendant believed them to be. Nothing contained in this paragraph shall
        constitute a defense to a prosecution for, or preclude a conviction of,
        manslaughter in the first degree or any other crime; or
        (b) The defendant’s conduct consisted of causing or aiding, without
        the use of duress or deception, another person to commit suicide.
        Nothing contained in this paragraph shall constitute a defense to a
        prosecution for, or preclude a conviction of, manslaughter in the second
        degree or any other crime.

      This Person is NOT WORTH Any WEBSITE Communication… Help US HERE, Please!!! This Murderer’s voice JUST GOT Silenced.. {Or,, DID it???

  • Jersey

    Why can we not tie this woman to a tree and have a sniper take a practice shot from somewhere she cannot see so she just has to stand there not being able to move, just waiting for that one shot kill???? This woman is the devil and deserves nothing but immediate death for what she did to that innocent child! I cannot believe we let this confessed killer to take another step, let alone breathe on this God giving earth!

      If you do home health care for a living then your occupation is to take care of other people. I have an 11 month old daughter and she stresses me out quite frequently but I would never kill her or take her and wrap her up in a sheet until she can’t breathe anymore now that is just sick. Anyone who says she may have a justifiable reason for the way she treated her son it must be something wrong with your mind too, because she took pictures of her babies lifeless body after she dressed him a suit and posted pictures of her dead baby laying in the morgue on Facebook and not to much later wished hersekf a happy birthday. She should be sentenced to death. If she had the proper sense to call the baby’s father after she killed him to get a ride to the hospital then she knew exactly what she was doing, she could have call him before she killed the baby and asked his father to come and get him. This is a baby’s life that we’re talking about that was taken because the mother just didn’t want him anymore, adoption and giving him away was always an option before killing him.

      • sadindeed

        Trustingnone, I don’t see anyone commenting that they thought she had a “justifiable reason” to kill her son. Can you point that out to me?

  • secondamendmentman

    Another reason to get rid of the stigma associated with abortions and more proof of the need for better mental health care in this country. Either could have helped avoid this.

    • JT

      Careful there, 2ndman–you’re using reason and critical thought. You should know by now that ignorance, fear, anger, and “righteous” indignation are the only types of responses allowed here…

    • Sarah

      So it would have been better for a doctor to kill the baby before the mother could?? That’s somehow better? Logic? Reason? I see none.

  • sinner 3

    The kids in this world are sure having a bad run lately !! We as a society should start executing these P_O_S_!

  • FaithC

    Wrap her up so she can’t breath and just walk away. People who do things like this to children and animals need to have the same done to them.

    • FaithC

      secondamendmentman – You want us to believe you work in the legal system in any way. Maybe cleaning the court rooms. LOL Thanks for the laugh of the day.

      • Bill W

        Sorry I have to go with Faithc on this one. Anybody can cut and paste from a google search. I did not see any explanation from you.

      • secondamendmentman

        You’re right. Anybody can cut and paste, which is what I did with the definition of second degree. I don’t have time to convince the inconvincible. It is an explanation if you can read (a) in the definition.
        I guess my hopes are too high for people to realize a DA worth his salt will prosecute what they believe they can win, not what you think they should do.

  • sadindeed

    Quite right, Deedra. So sick of these people ready to hang everyone with no consideration given to ALL of the circumstances.

  • shontib

    I don’t think she snapped I checked out her fb she didn’t care, lied to family and was checking her fb while at the hospital according to the people who was there.

    • sadindeed

      Shontib, how does any of what you said indicate that she did not snap?? Snapping does not necessarily mean that you snap right back. A person can stay snapped, ya know. She was apparently taking good care of the child up until now, so something certainly happened. Sane people don’t just stop wanting their children.

  • Jennifer

    “Just SCREW it ALL…” Listen to {the REAL, REAL, Mind You, Faith C. ) Good Gal, Good , good Gal..{Guess this means Whatever??!!’

  • Renee

    A baby is dead, and all you people are fussing about who knows what??? People are leaving their children in cars and walking away without a second thought, What is happening to our world when things like this can happen and we worry about the state of mine someone is in. She didn’t have enough mind to call the child’s father until she killed the baby? She does need to be wrap tightly in a blanket to die. See what state of mind she is in then.

  • niknak

    She planned this for a while I believe cuz why did she already have a outfit for him that looks brand new she already had plans to kill this poor baby it was a breaking point when she first thought about it I heart is cry for thus baby that didn’t even make to see his first bday which was coming in a few days

  • Liz

    Honestly you guys can sit here and bicker about the law, but an innocent baby is dead. Killed by one of the people who should have taken care of him. She is sick, and honestly I don’t care what her reason was, she knew what she did was wrong or she wouldn’t have posted it on social media

  • Jeff

    Poor child.Anyone know the name of this creation by God that was killed?I pray for this Baby to enter Heaven and rest in peace and for the mother that she will ask forgivness from God, really mean it , and find her soul ,do her penance and be accepted by God again.

  • Savannah

    You know what’s really sad? I’ve lost 2 pregnancies and can’t have children now. I would love to be a mother yet these people that don’t want to be parents would rather kill the babies than let someone else love them. Sad.

  • Savannah

    @ FAITHC: I see so many comments from you on a regular basis, from the newsworthy to the mundane. Sometimes you seem genuine and sometimes you seem psycho. Sometimes you even say that it wasn’t you who posted but someone else pretending to be you. So, my question for you is: Who are you today?

  • bee

    My prayers and condolence goes out to her and family. The Media have a wicked way of twisting the truth, including the police and DA office, all of government officials. It’s more to this story then the public is lead to believe. I don’t believe she hurt, harm or kill her child. We as human beings have to be careful about judging people, rather it’s family or friends especially when you really don’t know the full truth about this story. Sometime new mothers have a harsh way of punishing themselves when things go wrong with their parenting skills. So until we know the facts of this case, just be mindful of the families on both side of this situation. The only true JUDGE in this case is GOD, we will probably never know the truth behind this incident. It’s only three witnesses that’s GOD, NICOLE and KIAM JR. It’s all speculation right NOW. I pray that GOD bless all that’s involved, may peace and healing be with you ALL

  • Elizabeth

    Bee she admitted it to the police and to family. She wasn’t even crying. And she posted pics of her dead baby on the internet saying she was sorry she did this to him. So you need to know the facts and quit trying to defend this monster.
