Toddler starved to death while mother played online

A mother was jailed for 25 years after her daughter starved to death while she played an online game for hours at a time. Rebecca Colleen Christie, 28, from New Mexico in the US, played the fantasy game World of Warcraft while her three-year-old daughter, Brandi, starved. The toddler weighed just 23lbs when she was finally rushed to hospital after her mother found her limp and unconscious.

  1. I’m surprised the mother didn’t just put her daughter in a cab with a note pinned to her pajama top. “Busy gambling…taking anther gamble here and hoping you’ll look after her.”

    Too late for both of them, now. Sad.

I Love it When you Talk Back!
