A 22-year-old mother in Illinois has been arrested for allegedly starving her 19-month-old son to death late last year, claiming she “lacked motivation” to properly care for the toddler.

Jamie Hannion was taken into custody in Tennessee earlier this month and returned to Cook County last week where she is facing one count each of first-degree murder and felony endangering the life of a child in the death of young Nathan Wisdom, who weighed less than 10 pounds at the time of his death, authorities confirmed to Law&Crime.

According to a report from the Chicago Tribune, deputies with the Cook County Sheriff’s Office on Oct. 18, 2022, responded to a 911 call about a baby in distress at Hannion’s home located in the 800 block of Victory Lane in incorporated Lyons Township, about 15 miles southwest of Chicago. The caller — later identified as Hannion’s sister — was reportedly taking care of her nephew at Hannion’s request when she went into his room and found the child dead in his crib.

Upon arriving at the scene, first responders located the “severely malnourished” child in his bedroom and pronounced him dead on the scene, according to the Tribune. Investigators at the home reportedly said rigor mortis had already set in by the time they arrived, meaning Wisdom had been dead for some time.

Additionally, deputies described Wisdom as being “cold to the touch with blue lips” and covered in his own feces and vomit in a sworn affidavit of probable cause, Chicago Fox affiliate WFLD reported.
