How Can A Mother Kill Her Own Child?

Jennifer E. Jansma, 29, had traveled from Glendale to visit family in Tucson for the Thanksgiving holiday with her son Jordan Iacovetta, 8.

Yesterday morning her mother couldn't contact her so she went to the hotel they were staying at, the Holiday Inn Express at 620 E. Wetmore Road, near North First Avenue, and found mother and son, unconscious and unresponsive, so she alerted the authorities.

The son was dead and the Tucson police investigation findings allege the mother had overdosed the 8 yr old child with pain killers, then tried to kill herself, in an attempted murder suicide.

The mother is expected to survive and when released from the hospital will be booked on suspicion of first degree homicide.

Autopsy results have not been released yet on Jordon Iacovetta.
