Officials say Watkins recorded the incident on her cellphone and sent the video to the child’s father. She then took the boy to a bedroom and attempted to suffocate him with a pillow.
The child’s aunt arrived at the home, found the boy, and took custody. The incident was reported to the Cuyahoga County Department of Child and Family Services, resulting in Watkins’ arrest on September 4, 2019.
Watkins pleaded guilty to attempted murder; kidnapping; child endangerment; domestic violence; felonious assault; and pandering obscenity involving a minor.
