Babysitter Found Guilty Of Murdering Infant Was Intoxicated And “Unhappy Being a Babysitter”

The 21-year-old apparently disliked babysitting. Her lawyer has blamed the infant's death on a French bulldog.

It has been revealed that Palmdale, California woman who was convicted on Wednesday of second-degree murder charges for the death of a 5-month-old boy last year dislikes babysitting.

Brittany Ann Ingrassi, 21, was found guilty of one count each of second-degree murder, assault on a child causing death, assault on a child becoming comatose and child abuse according to the Los Angeles Daily News. She faces 25 years to life.

The babysitter’s attorney argued that it wasn’t Ingrassi that killed the baby. Instead, the lawyer claimed that the injuries were caused by a French bulldog owned by the baby’s family.

According to People, prosecutors said she was “unhappy being a babysitter.” They also claimed that she was under the influence of alcohol while babysitting Aiden Lopez. Police said Ingrassi was a long-time friend of Aiden’s father.
