She smothers her baby while trying to breastfeed her

A mother is accused of having killed her eight-month-old daughter by suffocating her while she was breastfeeding her.

Celina Juarez has been arrested and charged with the murder of her child, the San Jose, Calif., Police Department said.

On November 4, officers were called after eight-month-old twin girls were discovered unconscious at a residence in the city.

In a press release, police said one of the girls was not breathing when help arrived.

The twins were taken to the nearest hospital where one of them died the next day.

Arrested on November 16, Ms. Juarez allegedly told investigators that she was trying to breastfeed her daughters when they lost consciousness, reports KRON.

The mother of the family clarified that she would have pressed Melani against her bosom, “preventing her from getting air”.

She would have said she was frustrated that her baby couldn’t nurse.

Celina Juarez would have done the same with her other little girl before resting the lifeless bodies in their crib.

The 29-year-old reportedly waited more than 20 minutes before leaving the twins’ room to seek help from her mother. It was the accused’s brother who reportedly called the emergency services on his way home.
