Mother Accused Of Pouring Bleach Down Chronically Ill Toddler's Feeding Tube
A Perth mother will reappear in court charged with allegedly trying to kill or hurt her chronically ill baby by pouring bleach down his feeding tube.
Brooke Evelyn Lucas’ son William was born with Pierre Robin Sequence, meaning he needs around-the-clock care. The 13 month old feeds and breathes through a tube.
The 26 year old is accused of pouring the powerful cleaning agent down his feeding tube four days after Christmas.
Days earlier, she posted on Facebook that he had been discharged from hospital after receiving treatment for bronchiolitis.
She was arrested on Friday and charged with intent to kill or endanger life by Child Abuse Squad Detectives.
Lucas is due to reappear in court on Monday.
