A woman is behind bars after throwing her son into a river.

Jillian Meredith McCabe of Oregon, was arrested after she called 911 and told dispatchers that she threw her son off the Yaquina Bay Bridge in Newport.

Police and firefighters searched the water below the bridge and found the body of 6-year-old London around 10:00 p.m.

Jillian, 34, was arrested at the bridge on charges of aggravated murder and manslaughter, police said.

Family members were shocked by Jillian’s actions. However, they explained that she took care of London, who was autistic and nonverbal, and of the child’s father, Matt McCabe, who had recently been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

“They have not had much luck,” Andrew McCabe, London’s uncle said.

In a recent blog post Jillian wrote: “Matt went from being the sole breadwinner and provider to not, in a matter of two weeks. I am scared and I am reaching out.”

Seems like she took her stresses out on her 6-year-old son by killing him.
