Indiana County woman charged in infant's suffocation death

| Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2008

An Indiana woman has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the July death of a 3-month-old boy in White Township.

State police at Indiana served an arrest warrant Monday on Jessica Nicole Wojno, 24.

She was arraigned before District Judge George Thachik and placed in Indiana County jail in lieu of $2,500 bond.

Indiana County Coroner Mike Baker said asphyxia by suffocation was the cause of death. He said he would have further details once he had a chance to see the charges.

The child was discovered July 11 inside a White residence and was later pronounced dead at Indiana Regional Medical Center.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
