This Mother is also responsible for her baby's death. She finds the child with a slap mark on its face and then leaves the child AGAIN for two nights alone with the father while she's out getting drunk. I don't feel sorry for this mother at all!! She was a clueless idiot who ignored obvious signs that something was wrong. It sounds like the father got trapped into the situation with her and didn't want to be there and to make matters worse an irresponsible mother was leaving the baby alone with him. It doesn't excuse him either! The guy was stressed. He was in a relationship he didn't want to be in and probably felt forced into fatherhood. But half of that equation was avoidable. He didn't have to be in a relationship with the mother. He just had to be a father to the child.
