A mother tried to kill her son because his father refused to take care of him, according to police in Indiana.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said that they have arrested 22-year-old Mekielle Yaneek Pullins, after being accused of trying to kill her 2-year-old son.

Pullins has been charged with one count of attempted murder.

She was booked into the Marion County Jail, pending a bail hearing.

According to the police investigation, Pullins became angry with Daniel Day, who is the father of the suspect’s 2-year-old son, because he did not want to take care the boy.

Pullins send the father threatening emails and text messages, saying that she was going to kill the child.

In one message, Pullins threatened to stab the child, and asked Day to pick up his dead body.

Pullins recorded herself placing her hands on the nose and mouth of the 2-year-old boy in an attempt to choke him to death.

The boy could be heard on the video struggling to breathe, and can be seen kicking in an attempt to get free.

Three children were removed from the suspect’s home by the Indiana Department of Child Services.

Pullins’ two other children are 3 and 7 years old.
