Jacksonville, FL (AP) - A north Florida woman has been
sentenced to 50 years in prison for shaking her baby to death after
the boy's crying interrupted her game on Facebook.

A Duval County judge sentenced 22-year-old Alexandra Tobias on
Tuesday. She pleaded guilty in October to second-degree murder.

Tobias previously told investigators that she was angered
because the boy was crying while she was playing the game
FarmVille. She said she shook the boy, smoked a cigarette to
compose herself and then shook him again.
