A salty tale

Kimberly N. Martines, who is 25, has started a 30 year jail sentence in South Carolina for killing Peyton, her 17 month baby, with salt.

She told police initially that Peyton and her twin sister had got hold of a bag of salt and covered themselves with it. But the cops questioned her four year old son – who told them he watched as Mummy fed the baby salt.

An autopsy on Peyton showed clinical brain death and a high concentration of sodium.
