Mother beats her nine old week son to death and commits suicide

They performed CPR, but she was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

In a statement, Lt. Joe Giasone said the initial investigation 'indicates a suicide.' An autopsy is planned.  

Her husband, Joseph Walsh, is yet to face trial in Chance's death. Bury was expected to testify as part of a deal with prosecutors. The couple were arrested after Bury's mom called police that she feared for the child's life.

Bury's mom regretted the daughter's actions and said she was given a light sentence as a mother is supposed to protect her child and she didn't do that. She also did not comment on her death later on when it happened.
Prosecutors fear the case will prove difficult now that the mother is dead. They fear it might be dismissed.
