Bellefontaine, Ohio: A lawyer has entered not guilty pleas for a woman facing murder charges in the suffocation deaths of her three sons over a 13-month period.
Authorities say Brittany Pilkington confessed to killing her 3-month-old son last week, a 4-year-old brother in April and a newborn baby brother last July.
The Logan County Prosecutor says the 23-year-old Pilkington was jealous at the attention her husband paid the boys over her and their young daughter.
Pilkington’s attorney entered the not guilty pleas at a hearing Wednesday. If convicted, she could get the death penalty.
Pilkington was jailed in Bellefontaine in western Ohio on $1 million bond.
Chief Assistant Prosecutor Eric Stewart says she is on suicide watch.
Services were held Wednesday for Noah Pilkington, found dead at his parents’ apartment Aug. 18.
