A 27-year-old mother, Laureen McArthur, has allegedly killed her own son.

The young mother  allegedly scalded her 14 month-old son to death in a hot bath, then begged for cash on Facebook.

Laureen McArthur, 27, is accused of fatally injuring her son Dominique at their home in Union City, Tennessee, on November 10.

Dominque was rushed to hospital with burns covering 47% of his body, and died on November 14 after being transferred to Arkansas Children’s Hospital for specialist treatment.

McArthur was arrested and charged with negligent homicide and child abuse on Tuesday, after issuing a plea for cash on her Facebook account, and sharing photos as well as a video of Dominique’s funeral.

The alleged killer posted a link to her Cashapp account the day after Dominique was admitted to hospital, and wrote: ‘If y’all wanna send me some money my Cashapp is $hannahp2000 any lil bit will help right now fr (IM NOT PUTING NOTHING ON FB BOUT IT AS OF RIGHT NOW’

She announced Dominique’s death on November 14, writing: ‘We love you baby boy.’

McArthur also shared a link to a GoFundMe page set up by pal China Smith to pay for Dominique’s funeral and ‘help ease the pain and burden for the family.’

Before being arrested, McArthur shared multiple photoshopped images of her late son as an angel, and also uploaded videos of a balloon release held in his honor.

She paid numerous tributes to Dominque on Facebook, writing ‘RIH’ (rest in heaven).

McArthur also uploaded images from the funeral including snaps of pallbearers carrying Dominique’s small white coffin to his grave, and a 15 minute video of a pastor conducting the service.

Investigators have yet to share further details on the circumstances surrounding Dominique’s death.
