(WIDK By Andrew Kepshire) - It appears food for your child is a luxury not all get.
Tania Coleman, 21, of Erie, PA was convicted of first-degree murder after starving her 14-month-old child to death, then hiding her in a suitcase.
According to the Washington Post, the Erie mother will serve a life sentence after being convicted of the murder that took place in May 2011 after depriving her child of nourishment.
Coleman reportedly withheld food and drink from the little girl because she was the ‘runt,’ and she had a different father from Coleman’s other two daughters.
Firefighters from Erie found the remains of 14-month-old Alayja in a suitcase along the road as they responded to a fire in May of last year.
