NEW YORK (AP) - A Queens woman is facing a murder charge in the death of her 11-month-old son.

District Attorney Richard A. Brown said Tuesday that Nicole Kelly is accused of intentionally harming Kiam (kee-AHM’) Felix Jr. in their Elmhurst home.

Authorities say Kelly covered the baby’s face and body with a bedsheet on Sunday. They say he was struggling to breathe and move but was left alone for 30 minutes. He turned blue and was taken to the hospital several hours later.

According to prosecutors, Kelly allegedly told investigators that she had reached her “breaking point” and no longer wanted the baby.

Information on her attorney was not immediately available. The defendant was hospitalized. Prosecutors said she may be arraigned on Wednesday.
