Tragic murder/suicide attempt left 6-month-old dead but the mother survived (UPDATE: Mom has died.)

This story is so tragic. An Ocala mother shot and killed her 6-month-old baby then shot herself. She survived and will now face murder charges. The father of the baby was involved in litigation regarding the child's bet interest when the murder happened. You can read more details here on The Sun's site:

UPDATE: The mom was just taken off of life support and has died.

This is so very sad, this could have been due in part to PPD. I had it after my first daughter was born I didn't know it at the time
I was only 17 at the time and I can tell you it is hard to deal with.
I wonder if there should be more support put in place for moms with newborns
Maybe along with the Dr's appointment there should be some type of screening to help
I feel so bad for the families they have all suffered a great loss

She was also 14-18 weeks pregnant at this time. So sad. 

I agree.  Very, very tragic. 

The story just keeps getting worse!
