A MUM has been charged with the murder of her baby son after allegedly repeatedly hitting him as punishment for soiling his diaper.
Trinity Pittman, 23, initially told medics her 20-month-old son, Conner Perry, had injured himself while jumping on a trampoline.

But doctors became suspicious after finding the baby had a broken jaw, missing teeth and his abdomen was full of blood – before he died in hospital.
Pittman later confessed to cops that she hit her child several times, causing him to fall onto the floor and strike his head at their home in Palmetto, Georgia, US.
According to the mum, Conner then “went to sleep” just after 8.30pm on Friday.
She reportedly admitted she was angry with her baby son because he had soiled his diaper and was not obeying her commands.
Hours after the alleged attack, Pittman went to work and left Conner and her four-year-old daughter in the care of her boyfriend, Jeremy Davis, 24.
She allegedly told him the same story about Conner falling off the trampoline.
Police say he later called Pittman to tell her that baby Conner was vomiting and having trouble breathing.
Pittman returned home and took Conner to the hospital, reports claim.
Conner was taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta where he was pronounced dead.
Detectives say the boy had cuts and bruises to his face as well as bleeding on the brain and missing teeth.
“Trinity Pittman exhibited general disregard for the welfare of her own child Conner Perry and acted out of personal spite towards the child leading to physical injury,” the warrant states.
