Lacey Spears, the mommy blogger who was so “desperate for attention” that she allegedly slowly poisoned her son with sodium, has been indicted on charges of depraved murder and manslaughter for the death of 5 year old Garnett-Paul Spears.

Prosecutors say after searching the internet about the effects of sodium overdoses, Spears fed her son large amounts of salt “once before his seizures and again when his sodium spiked”. According to the Washington Post, investigators “suspect his medical abuse went back much further — fueled by the social media attention she gained on Facebook, Twitter and blogs”.

Spears has pleaded not guilty.
