Berne, Ind. (The Weekly Vice) - Sasha Hunt, a 22-year-old Indiana woman, was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly stuffed a sock into her infant son's mouth and left him alone in a closet to die.
According to police, Hunt placed a sock over her 3-month-old son's mouth, wrapped his head with duct tape to keep the sock in place and then wrapped the child's arms so he couldn't remove the tape from his mouth. She then wrapped the infant in a blanket, placed him face-down on a pillow and then locked him in a closet to die.
Investigators say Sasha Hunt's husband left the residence for about 15 minutes at about 12:45 a.m.. When the husband returned, he asked Sasha if she was ready for bed. She answered "yes."
The husband, Nathan Hunt, went downstairs to shut off the television when he heard a muffled cry coming from upstairs. Fearing that his baby son had rolled over onto his face, Nathan ran upstairs to check on the baby.
Sasha Hunt reportedly followed her husband into the child's room, begging him to stop. But when Nathan found that the baby's crib was empty, he began checking around the room until he found the gagged infant inside the closet.
After removing the tape and gag, Nathan Hunt gave his wife a choice. Either she could turn herself in and check into a mental health facility, or he would call police and turn her in.
Nathan Hunt told investigators that prior to the incident, Sasha had kicked holes in walls, attacked him physically and frequently handled their child in a rough manner. The child was also found with bruises recently, which Sasha blamed on the couple's 1-year-old daughter.
On another occasion, Sasha reportedly told her husband that she wished the baby had never been born and hoped that he would die.
Sasha Hunt was booked into jail and charged with attempted murder and neglect of a dependent.
