9780863696466: From Cradle to Grave

Year after year, one after another, the babies of Marybeth Tinning died - nine children in 14 years. Incredibly, neither police nor coroners, doctors, social workers or neighbours suspected anything. The vague verdicts of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome fooled even Marybeth's husband. On 4th February 1986, however, six weeks after the last baby's death, even he had to face the unthinkable - as his wife was charged with their murder. This book tells the story of Marybeth Tinning's children, her arrest and subsequent trial.

From Publishers Weekly:

Marybeth Tinning of Schenectady, N.Y., bore eight children and adopted a ninth; all of the infants died, even though all but one seemed healthy. Autopsies were performed on some, with inconclusive results, and the causes of death were generally described as undetermined or ascribed to crib death. Except for the first baby, who had died of a congenital illness, Tinning had probably killed them all, according to Egginton's ( The Poisoning of Michigan ) sensitive, thought-provoking study. An insecure, unstable woman married to an emotionless, passive husband, Tinning suffered, the author concludes, from postpartum psychosis, induced by her belief that she was an unfit mother and by her inability to cope with the everyday problems of raising children. Convicted of murdering her ninth baby, Tami Lynne, Tinning is serving a 20-year-to-life sentence. Photos not seen by PW.

From Library Journal:

From 1972 to 1985, all the children of the Tinnings, a Schenectady, N.Y. couple, died in infancy. At first, friends and physicians assumed they were victims of "crib death" or an inexplicable genetic flaw. As the deaths continued, suspicion mounted against the mother, who was always alone when her babies were stricken. Without hard evidence, officialdom was agonizingly slow to act, but finally, following a police interrogation, Marybeth made a confession (later retracted) to smothering three children. Investigative reporter Egginton has written a moving, sympathetic account of human tragedy, including insights into what triggers infanticide, a phenomenon which the author suggests is more prevalent than commonly believed. Recommended.
