Pharmaceutical millionaire mum Gigi Jordan is standing trial for the death of her son, an 8-year old autistic boy whom she is accused of feeding a fatal dose of pills that killed him in a luxury hotel.
She is also being accused of calmly conducting business as the boy lay dying beside her.
It’s claimed that as the boy passed away she sent an email asking for money to be transferred from her son’t trust to her own account.
All this happened in a hotel room on 5th Avenue, NYC.
Her defence claims she killed her son as a mercy killing and she was distraught due to claims the son was at the hands of sexual and physical abuse from his father and problems with his illness.
However the cool and calculated email means that prosecutors reject these notions.
A complicated and terribly sad story. You can read more details on News.com.au here.
