A south suburban woman is accused of killing her infant son then carrying him around for hours the next day.

Toyrianna Smith of Harvey is charged with first-degree murder.

Prosecutors say she suffocated her 3-month-old baby last Wednesday because he wouldn't stop crying.

Smith then allegedly put the dead infant in a baby carrier and took him shopping with her before going to a neighbor's house. That neighbor called police.

Smith allegedly confessed to suffocating her child.
