Mom Charged With Attempted Murder After Taping Sock In Baby’s Mouth
BERNE, ID – A woman has been charged with attempted murder after she taped a sock inside her infant’s mouth and then left him in a closet face down.
Earlier this month, 22-year-old Sasha Hunt waited until her husband left the house to tape a sock inside the mouth of their three-month-old son before wrapping him in a blanket and placing him face-down inside a closet.
When her husband, Nathan, returned home 20 minutes later, he asked Sasha if she was ready to go to bed. She said she was, so he went downstairs to turn off the television. That’s when he heard a muffled cry coming from his youngest son’s room. When he went to check, he found that his son was not in his crib.
As he headed towards the cries coming from inside the closet, Sasha reportedly told him to stop. He didn’t, and found his son on the floor of the closet. He immediately took the tape off the baby’s face and the sock out of his mouth. Sasha allegedly said, “that’s not me.” She then told her husband she’d lost control and that her actions “scared her.”
Nathan gave Sasha an ultimatum; either she turn herself in and go to Behavior Health at the Adams Memorial Hospital, or he was going to turn her into the police. She was checked into the hospital an hour later.
Turns out that Sasha has a history of Bipolar disorder related outbursts, and was already on medication to treat it. She had to stop taking those medications while pregnant with their 3-month-old, probably explaining her actions, including some before that night.
Before she force-fed her son a sock, Sasha had pushed air conditioners out of the windows, kicked holes in doors and walls, and physically attacked Nathan. Two weeks before the sock incident, she slipped one of her prescription pills into her husband’s drink without him knowing, telling him it was because “he was too boring.”
But Nathan wasn’t the only one suffering from her attacks. According to Nathan, Sasha was handling their baby too roughly. Bruises were showing up on the baby’s face and when questioned about them, Sasha told him their other child, a one-year-old, was to blame. According to the police report, Sasha then told Nathan she hated the baby and wished he would die.
Police ordered a non-voluntary committal to Behavior Health for Sasha. On Wednesday, she was arrested and charged with attempted murder and neglect of a dependent.
Mental illness sucks, especially when it is not being treated correctly. I hope Sasha is able to get the help she needs, whether that be inside a prison or inside a psychiatric facility. It does seem like this couple were playing with fire, though. She was already being treated for her mental illness, and then immediately has another baby?
