MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee woman has been charged with suffocating her 14-month-old son.

The complaint filed Tuesday says Zylstra told police she was distraught because the boy's father moved out last month. She said he returned to pick up belongings Saturday, and rebuffed her pleas to reconcile for the good of their son.

The complaint says she admitted taking several prescription pills Saturday night and early Sunday before smothering the boy, then dressed him in his Christmas outfit before trying to kill herself with a toaster in the bathtub.

Court records don't list a lawyer for Zylstra.
