SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) - A Sheboygan Falls woman is due back in court next week to enter a plea to charges that she killed her 2-year-old son.

Sheboygan County District Attorney Joe DeCecco (deh-CHEK’-oh) says a plea of not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect is most likely. Court records do not list an attorney for 27-year-old Katlyn Kinateder.

A criminal complaint says that in an interview with investigators, Kinteder admitted to suffocating her son, Dexter, with a plastic grocery bag. The complaint says she told officers she had lost her mind and wanted to die. She said she came at officers with a knife because she wanted them to shoot her.

The charging document says Kinateder told officers she had stopped taking medication for depression and anxiety about nine months earlier.
